There are more secluded little bays than you could possibly find in two weeks, but you will no problems in finding an idyllic spot to relax on the beach under the shade of a palm tree. The South Coast of Sri Lanka is a surfing, scuba diving and swimming paradise, with the warm seas providing comfortable swimming conditions, plentiful marine life and excellent surfing conditions in places. In fact, the Unawatuna Reef on the South Coast of Sri Lanka is home to more species of marine animal that the Great Barrier Reef, and visibility is second to none.

The Yala West National Park is the ideal place for safaris on foot, letting you see the true nature of the island first hand. You can even stay in a tree-top house in the park for an eco-friendly stay. Situated on the edge of the park is Sri Lanka’ holiest temple, the Kataragama, a Hindu Temple, which is a fantastic place to visit in July and August during the full moon when the Perahera Festival takes place.
