  • Awe-inspiring wildlife and conservation reserves;

Things To Do in Sri Lanka

With such an abundance of cultural relics at your fingertips it would be a sin not to visit one of Sri Lanka’s many ancient sites. Let your imagination run wild in a visit to the Sigiriya Rock (meaning Lion’s Rock in Sinhalese) – a rock-palace ruin that was allegedly built in around 480 AD, and was used as a Buddhist monastery for over 10 centuries. A visit to the ancient city of Polonnaruwa will see you walking the same well-worn ground as the ancient Kings of the 8th century, whilst a wander through the Dambulla Caves will delight you with paintings and statues of both Buddhist and Hindu origin.

The urban hub of Columbo city harmonises the country’s cultural heritage with the excitement of modern living. This vibrant city is alive with museums, art exhibitions, performing arts events and of course pleny of restaurants and bars. For a more intimate city experience visit the island’s smaller city, Galle, which boasts the World Heritage Site, Galle Fort, and a picturesque harbour.

A trip to the beach is a must in Sri Lanka and there are so many to choose from, catering to everyone’s taste.  Bentota beach is the place to go for water sports, whilst Hikkadua beach pulls in a younger crowd of surfers and late-night party goers. If you are searching for something a little more tranquil, however, head west to Kalapitya where you can watch dolphins and whales swim by whilst wandering along the picturesque coastlines.

The island’s natural beauty is unmissable and will have you gasping in awe! Admire the beautiful Bambarakanda waterfall, take a safari trip through the tropical terrain, or do your bit for the wildlife in a visit to the renowned Elephant Orphanage at Pinnawala.

Whale watching in Mirissa, a quiet and peaceful coastal town, is a must for animal lovers. There are around 26 different species of whales, including sperm whales and blue whales, that migrate through this region during the annual breeding season (December to April).

From ancient history to stunning natural beauty, Sri Lanka is the perfect place for an unforgettable holiday in the sunshine.
