Essential Information

The Teardrop of India

With golden sands stretching across a sumptuous Indian Ocean fringed coastline, an interior glowing from the rich hues of nature and revered sites of enchanting ancient splendour, the island nation of Sri Lanka is an enticing holiday destination. Known as the ‘Teardrop Island’, Sri Lanka beckons with its breathtakingly beautiful landscapes, from the soft sands of its east and west coastlines, to the rolling valleys of its mountainous central regions, to the lush swathes of tea plantations. Together with eight UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the garden city of Kandy, the ancient city of Sigiriya and the fortress city of Galle, a holiday to Sri Lanka is also a chance to explore a country replete with fascinating cultural and historical references.

Beaches, Water Sports and Diving

Water sports are readily available in many of the island’s top resorts, including Kalutara and Waikkal. The Jetwing Blue stands on the golden shores of Negombo and is perfect for those who wish to really make the most of the beautiful Indian Ocean. The corals that surround the coast of Sri Lanka provide world-class snorkelling conditions. Sri Lanka holidays are a great opportunity for you to explore the stunning marine life that inhabits the area. Lessons are available all year round, no matter whether you are an experienced diver or a complete novice. There is no shortage of activities when it comes to holidays in Sri Lanka. The Island has more than 1,500km of beautiful coastline, featuring unspoilt golden beaches and beautiful turquoise waters, making it the perfect holiday destination for those who enjoy nothing more than whiling away the days in the sun.

Nature Reserves

Once you have explored the sea, come back ashore and take a trip to some of the various nature reserves found on the island. Here you can take a safari and see some of the diverse wildlife Sri Lanka has to offer, including elephants and leopards. If you want to learn more about the history and culture of the island, Sri Lanka holidays provide a number of amazing sites to discover. The nation’s rich history can be experienced when visiting locations such as ancient rock sculptures, Buddhist temples, fortresses and palaces. Sri Lanka is now one of the world’s leading destinations for holidaymakers looking for the ultimate in luxury resorts and villas. Our site is constantly updating with the latest deals and offers and you can also use our handy search tool to customise your perfect holiday to Sri Lanka.

Packing tips

A glorious coastline with an intriguing interior, Sri Lanka is a wonderful country that still seems somewhat under the radar. From exploring timeless ruins to riding elephants to lying on soft sands, there are a myriad of options when travelling to this island in the Indian Ocean.

The peak season for tourists is the summer. At this time, you will need shorts and t-shirts during the day as it is likely to be warm and sunny every day. Beachwear is obviously needed, maybe a few options, and the usual sunscreen, after sun and insect repellent are important. If it does rain, chances are that it will be far too hot and humid to wear a rain coat but maybe a small umbrella can come in handy. In the evenings it may cool off a bit but it is still light fabrics and loose clothing that you will need. Within the resorts, sandals are likely to be more than fine. The community is liberal but make sure clothing is appropriate. There are a lot of trips inland and, if you take these, then appropriate footwear will be crucial. Places like Galle, Kandy and Sigiriya are wonderful to explore but be prepared with daypacks. If you are doing an overnight trip then you might need a warmer jumper because it can get cooler inland.

Best Time to Visit Sri Lanka

There is a tropical climate in Sri Lanka with dry and wet seasons. It is quite a year-round destination for holidaymakers.

In the south west you get rain from May to September with the dry season coming in between December and March. By contrast, the north and eastern regions are dry from May to September with the wind and rain coming in from October to January. October and November can see thunderstorms across the island.

Generally speaking, December through April is the peak season for the best weather and this brings the largest crowds to Sri Lanka. The season from April to September can be a great time to go with better prices, lower crowds and good countrywide weather.
