Make a holiday rental home or villa on the West Coast of Sri Lanka your home away from home

The vast majority of Sri Lanka’s finest holiday resorts are located along its beautiful west coast. With white sandy beaches, warm waters and a laid-back atmosphere, these resorts make for the ideal beach holiday, but in addition to this there are ancient cities, fascinating wildlife, glorious weather and stunning landscapes all there to be enjoyed. Consider renting a self-catering villa on the west coast of Sri Lanka for a once in a lifetime holiday.

Things to do in West Coast Sri Lanka

It is the west coast of Sri Lanka that entices the majority of tourists to this delightful isle, and it is not hard to see why. The tropical beaches of white powder sand are some of the finest in the world, and they are backed up by clear warm waters that provide great water sports, swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities.

If you can drag yourself away from the beach you will find that there is much more to see and do, with historical landmarks, dense forests, religious monuments and busy cities all waiting to be discovered. Whether you plan a week of touring Buddhist temples, exploring nature, making the most of the spicy cuisine or simply relaxing, there is something for you on the west coast of Sri Lanka.

Places to visit on holiday in West Coast Sri Lanka

On the middle of the west coast, Colombo is the most populated city in Sri Lanka, and is a busy and bustling multi-cultural area that combines modern facilities with cultural and historic attractions. Some of the city’s main draws include the Colombo Museum, the Murugan Hindu temple, Viharamahadevi Park and Gallery Island.

Those looking for a more relaxing base should head further down the coast, as this is also where some of the finest beaches are. Bentota and Beruwela are where you find most of the tourist accommodation, and great water sports can be found further south in the ‘hippy’ town of Hikkaduwa.

Weather in West Coast Sri Lanka

The climate in Sri Lanka is one of relentless heat, and one best enjoyed sipping a cold drink on a beach. Temperatures rarely drop below 25C, and are more commonly around the 30C mark. The driest months are February, March and April, but visitors should expect rain at some point during their stay. Don’t begrudge it though – it is after all the reason for the country’s lush rainforests and roaming green landscapes.

Flights to West Coast Sri Lanka

Bandaranaike International Airport is Sri Lanka’s only international airport, but is conveniently situated for holidays to the island’s west coast. Situated 35km north of Colombo, the airport receives direct flights in summer from London Gatwick though Thomson Airways. Visitors making the journey outside of peak season may be required to change planes.

Karthi and her father are super easy to work with and very accommodating. We arrived at 530 in the morning expecting to have to wait to check in, but she had us meet her father right away. He met us at 530 in the morning! The location is not a tourist area. Not a lot of tourist spots super close, but the Tuck Tuck cabs are super cheap. We actually liked being away from all that. The apartment is big and each room has its own shower which is really nice. It's quiet and there is a security team for the building. I gave her 4 stars on location and accuracy because the pictures show the rooftop pool and make it seem like there is a view of the ocean and that the ocean is close. The view from the room is not the ocean, but old rusty buildings. And it's a good 10 minute walk from the beach. I would have put 4 on experience because the water never got hot and the wifi didn't work, but I have to be fair and she did offer to fix them. I just wasn't that worried about it. So, if you want to stay away from the tourist traps and immerse yourself in the real Sri Lanka while feeling secure and being comfortable, I recommend this place. And again, Karthi and her father could not have been better.

The villa is great, big rooms and really comfy, loads of seating outside and in to sit and read or just chill out with a drink. The kitchen appeared to have everything you need but to be honest Mr Thilak just does everything and anything for you so you rarely have to go in there. He is there with fresh tea when you wake, makes breakfast and is in and out throughout the day making sure you want for nothing. Then comes dinner, wow, Sri Lankan cuisine at its best. He makes awesome devilled prawns and great curries with the help of the two ladies, who needs lots of restaurants, you feel like you're in one every Evening! Our kids tried everything and loved it all but Thilak went out of his way to accomodate them, making them fried chicken & fries, fresh pancakes for breakfast & stocked up with ice cream etc when it was running low. After our safari trip our kids couldn't wait to get back to see Thilak! Sitting outside relaxing on the terrace, listening to the sea in such beautiful surroundings, next to a lovely, large pool.....heaven. if you want to travel and explore then there is lots to see, we took a trip to Yala for a jeep safari which was a great experience, seeing elephants up so close in their natural habitat is magical. Be warned though, it's a 5.30am Start! Because of this we travelled the day before and stayed over in a hotel near Yala (The rain tree) which was very nice and great value. Opul, the tuk tuk driver next door to the villa arranged everything and took us. Never had such a relaxing holiday or been so well looked after. Thank you, we will return one day as there is so much more we want to see. Ps the weather in August was great, we had one shower in two weeks and a constant 28°, perfect...kids were really happy & safe in the pool. Added bonus the security guard & gardener were always around & made the whole holiday more relaxing as we felt so safe & secure.
