Make a holiday rental homes or villas in South Coast of Sri Lanka your home away from home

The appeal of holiday to the South Coast of Sri Lanka is undeniable. The stunning sandy coves that decorate the South Coast of Sri Lanka are indescribably endearing, and the whole coast has a very subdued, peaceful atmosphere, as most of the tourist crowds flock to the west coast. There are 130km of stunning beaches along this stretch of coast, with picture perfect scenes at almost every turn.

Things to do on holiday in the South Coast of Sri Lanka

Escaping to the South Coast of Sri Lanka is an absolutely magnificent option for the perfect beach holiday in the blazing sunshine. Tourist crowds are brilliantly sparse, and not due to a lack of Sri Lanka tourist attractions either. 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.

Inland, the South Coast of Sri Lanka is home to the two most important national parks on the island. 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.

Places to visit on holiday in the South Coast of Sri Lanka

Galle is Sri Lanka’s most impressive town. Steeped in history and still surrounded by the 16th century defensive walls built by the Dutch, which protected the city from the worst of the tsunami, Galle offers visitors a sensational amount of entertainment and place of interest to explore. A holiday home or villa in Galle is an ideal place from which to explore the interior of the island too, with excellent access to both the Uda Walawe Game Park and the Sinharajah Rain Forest.

Unawatuna is not still the deserted beach paradise it became famous for being, yet its charm still shines through. There is plenty of beach with safe swimming and the best scuba diving on the island, and the small restaurants which surround the beach serve the finest of Sri Lankan cuisine at very low prices.

Weather in the South Coast of Sri Lanka

The main tourist season in Sri Lanka is from December until March, with average monthly temperatures of around 30˚C. Although there is little change in monthly average temperatures from the hottest to the coldest months (30˚C – 24˚C), the rainy season occurs during the British summertime.

Travel to the South Coast of Sri Lanka

There are regular flights from London to Sri Lanka’s Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB). Sri Lankan Airways provide the majority of flights, and when you land on the island, there are a huge range of transfer options at very reasonable prices.

Quelle magnifique semaine !

5 of 5
Un coin de paradis au bord d’une plage déserte. Nous avons été chouchoutés tout au long de cette semaine par tout le personnel de la villa, ainsi que par notre chauffeur de tuk-tuk : gentillesse, excellente cuisine, calme et sérénité. Nous conseillons fortement. Nadine et Jean-Luc

5 of 5
We stayed 17 to 27 October 2017 and had a brilliant time with our 2 boys aged 10 and 13. 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
