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.

From the time we stepped off the plane everything was taken care of. The house is situated right on a famous surfing break in Sri Lanka. Its for every level, but particularly good for people want to have a go. The house was very big and fresh! Also the workers there were lovely, making tasty local breakfast dished every morning. We had a blast and will come again for sure. The location is nice and quite, but only a short tuk tuk ride to more action in Unewatuna. Also neighbour restaurant was very good. Two thumbs up!!

The veranda is where I want to be everyday, listening to the ocean, watching the waves and reconnecting with the world! You couldn't get a better location and the gardens and house were immaculate. Facilities spot on, really comfortable beds (a must), great kitchen and living areas and 2 bathrooms (one outdoor - fab!!! and one indoor). Decor, ambience and staff couldn't have been more welcoming and made my first trip to Sri Lanka unforgettable. The local area is buzzing with great bars and restaurants. Short hope along the beach and you can be drinking cocktails whilst watching the sunset! Also an ideal base to tour from. I loved Columbo and Galle town as well as the exploring we did in Udawalawe. Sri Lanka is a place like no other, and Marley's is the same. It steals a place in your heart and leaves you wanting more. Thanks for having me x

Service levels to match or better most 6 star hotels, meals made to order (almost) and right by a private beach. Home away from home! Will recommend and will visit again!!
