Most Beautiful places to visit in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka was famously described by Marco Polo as one of the finest islands in the world, and it has a history that dates back thousands of years. Although it’s small, there is so much history, nature, and beauty to see in this country.
THINGS TO DO IN SRI LANKA
Climb a sacred mountain. Lounge on a deserted beach. A enjoy a cuppa on a picture-perfect plantation. All this and more awaits on this most serendipitous of islands..
One of Sri Lanka's seven World Heritage Sites, this rock-top fortress dates back to the 5th century AD. The atmosphere is more spiritual than militant: in its time it has acted as a royal palace and Buddhist monastery.
You’ll see elephants everywhere you go in Sri Lanka: working on the streets of Colombo, running wild in national parks, and leading the Esala Peraha parade in Kandy in all their bejewelled and sequined glory.
At the heart of Sri Lanka's tea industry, this charming throwback to the country's colonial years is rich with the heritage of home-county England. Tour neatly-terraced tea estates, watch pickers at work, and buy your own samples to take home.
The beach at Arugam Bay is the stuff of Bounty ads: sugar-soft sands, coconut palms and utter solitude but for the whoops of the surfers riding the point.
Sri Lanka's alpha predator is protected in a number of national parks, but is most easily sighted in Yala, on the island's southern coast, where you can cool off in the ocean after a day on safari.
Sri Lanka’s southern tip nudges the depths of the continental shelf. It’s an area favoured by blue whales and nowhere else does the world’s biggest creature swim so close to land, so reliably.
Often referred to as the 'pearl in the Indian Ocean', Sri Lanka offers world-class spots for scuba-diving and snorkelling. A multitude of tropical fish, magnificently colourful coral reefs and fascinating shipwrecks can be explored at several locations.
