Beaches of Sri Lanka

To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive – Robert Louis Stevenson

Whether its hitting the waves that your after or just relaxing and sunbathing on the beaches Sri Lanka has it all and more.

Let’s take a deeper look at why this little island seems to have it all.


Located on the east coast this little beach provides golden beaches and sunny skies almost all year round.


If your looking for beaches with hotels then you dont have to look any further than Bentota which has a string of hotels running across the coastline.

Arugam Bay

Surfers paradise, check, away from city life, check, this beach helps you get away from it all and allows you to just focus on the surf, join the locals to learn about the area as there are some additional bonus locations scattered across the area.


The south coast is home to one of the most picturesque beaches in Sri Lanka that holds palm trees and you could even go whale watching as they migrate to warm waters.


Although it might have a dark past due to its location being close to where the war was fought, this meant that this sleepy non developed area is basically untouched. If that’s more to your style I highly recommend that you check it out before that changes.


So are you convinced yet that Sri Lanka must be on top of your vacation list of countries that you absolutely must visit?

Of course it should be!
