Located in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka holidays offer extremely good value for money, especially when you take into consideration the fantastically warm welcome you will receive, the stunning sights you will see and the great activities you will enjoy.

Things to do on holiday in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is adorned with amazing historical and religious monuments, many of which are completely unique. Any Sri Lanka tour of historic and religious monuments must take in sites including the staggering 5th century Sigiriya Fortress which rises dramatically out of the thick tropical forest, the ancient capitals of Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura, Kandy’s religious centre to the cave temples of Dambulla at least! As you travel Sri Lanka’s roads, many more amazing man made sights will catch your eye, and the vast majority are worth further exploration.

The tropical beaches are a real asset for Sri Lanka holidays. Stretching almost uninterrupted around the coast, Sri Lanka’s beaches are powder soft and startlingly golden. Littered only by vividly coloured fishing boats, you can always find a secluded spot on the beach from a Sri Lanka property, and the sea is warm and clear, perfect for taking a quick dip, snorkelling or sailing amongst other water sports. The scuba diving in Sri Lanka is exceptional, and there are plenty of opportunities to go diving form Sri Lanka accommodation.

The tropical forests which cover the mountainous interior of Sri Lanka are a marvel of nature. Every shade of green blend together to hide some 2,000 elephants, four species of wild cats (including leopard), sloth bears and over 400 species of predominantly brightly coloured tropical birds. There are four main national parks in Sri Lanka, providing a magnificent opportunity to explore the forest.

The ten day festival of Kandy Esala Perahera in July is a fantastic time to be staying in a Sri Lanka property, allowing visitors to experience Sri Lankan culture at its most vibrant and accessible. As any Sri Lanka travel guide will tell you though, finding Sri Lanka accommodation at the time may prove hard.

From collection at the airport to taking us to the shops/restaurants and days out to Galle or an elephant safari nothing was too much trouble. The restaurants had a great selection and even our fussy boys were able to choose a variety of meals. The beach is approx 1000m long and great for a stroll, on one day we saw 6 other people!! It is deserted. (Though could do with a clean up of the plastic bottles along the highest part of the beach) The villa rooms are great, comfortable double beds in all 3 rooms and the air con actually makes the rooms too cold on the lowest settings.The 3 Ensuites are all spacious and the cleaners come in each day to make the beds and clean the floors. 6 Degrees North take care of the villa, transport, tours and anything else you might need, Udith Illege was the manager and was very welcoming. This was our first visit to Sri Lanka and were slightly nervous , but we will be back as everything was perfect, next time for longer

The location is amazing, the coast and sound of the waves is captivating, the excursions possible nearby magical, the food delicious and the attentive staff very helpful. Thanks and we are very likely to return to Sri Lanka after this magical experience.
