With more than 2,500 years of recorded history this tropical island country has a wealth of culture and heritage to go along with its stunning natural beauty, amazing beaches and rich biodiversity!
Sri Lanka is located just on the south tip of the Indian subcontinent and surrounded by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Sure there are monsoons between May and August much like most Southeast Asian destinations but the sky is generally deep blue, the sun shines brightly and the white sandy beaches beckon you to dip into the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
With small distances to travel and a large variety of activities on offer you could be enjoying a deserted beach in the morning and hiking in the lush tropical island’s interior in the afternoon, Sri Lanka is ideal for both active tourists and for the ones who simply want to relax.
Its many national parks are also easy to access and with an organised safari tour you will have the chance to experience its unique wildlife. From an elephant heading to a favourite waterhole, to leopards, water buffaloes, all manner of birds and a passel of primates.
This largely undiscovered gem in the Indian Ocean is waiting for you to explore!
