Being home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it is no wonder more and more holidaymakers are choosing to enjoy beach holidays in Sri Lanka. Awarded as having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world as well as making National Geographic’s top ten beaches for 2015, Sri Lanka will leave you spoilt for choice. There are three main geographical categories these beaches fall under and they are the East, South, and West coasts of Sri Lanka and each coast has its unique character and charm with new and different things to explore.
Amongst some of the most beautiful beaches to call Sri Lanka home are those that dot the eastern coast of Sri Lanka. Uppuveli, Pasikuda, Nilaveli, and Arugam Bay are just a few of the more well-known gems to be found on the east coast. If you are looking for a tranquil and peaceful getaway a beach holiday is the ideal way to relax and unwind.
Affectionately known as “Down South” by the locals, the south coast of Sri Lanka features breathtaking beaches, colonial townships, monolithic Buddhist shrines, and amazing wildlife parks in Sri Lanka in a nutshell. Reef diving at Bentota Beach, Snorkeling with turtles in Hikkaduwa, or whale watching in Unawatuna are just a few of the absolute must-see and do things if you are a beach lover and staying down south.
The west coast of Sri Lanka is Sri Lanka at its “Most developed” or most westernised with a myriad of guest houses, hotels, and accommodations strung across the west coast. Don’t let this discount the beaches on offer though, from Galle Face in Colombo, Negombo Beach, Maravilla Beach, and up to Beruwala Beach, you will be spoilt for choice as well as the rich culture from the fishing communities that line this coast.
