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.

                                  An amazing time in Negombo!

                                  4 of 5
                                  This villa was everything I expected from the photos and more. The property is very well taken care of and the staff were wonderful. I enjoyed the spacious villa, the scenery, the pool, and the delicious food prepared by the cook. The air conditioners in a couple of the rooms weren't working, which is difficult due to the humidity, but a dip in the pool was always available. The nearby restaurants were also fabulous; I recommend the Lagoon View Hotel restaurant. I would recommend this villa to my friends. I loved my time in Negombo!

                                  No surprise with the house ; it was in accordance with the photos and the description. It was spacious and roughly well-maintained. The swimming pool was very nice and clean. Fernando, the house manager, was very attentive and provided us many advices and helps. The guide Chamila was perfect. Be careful if you need the internet to bring a computer and not a touchpad.
