Beach Quest

NOT your everyday beach holiday!

.. A sea for all seasons? On an island paradise like ours, you are likely to find a perfect beach at the end, in every direction. So pick your coast – North, South, East or West and you can enjoy miles of golden shores in all their sunny glory – at your own pace and time too.

Explore palm fringed coasts lively with thriving fishing villages or isolated white sands with only the seabirds for company.  Watch gentle ripples on peaceful coves, visit ancient ramparts where waves crash unrelenting on the rocks below or discover some of the world’s nicest surfing swells, even check out some big ‘fish’ in whale watching excursions. In the coastal towns, history lives on: Portuguese islands, Dutch mansions, British forts and significant local landmarks abound.  A myriad Buddhist temples, Hindu kovils, churches and mosques cohabit in harmony, their colourful festivals and fascinating rituals make an enthralling spectacle.  You can keep to the world renowned resort towns on the Western and Southern coasts such as Negombo, Beruwela, Bentota, Hikkaduwa and Galle or head for the less busy shores of Trincomalee, Nilaveli and Arugam Bay on the East. With peace finally settling in, the unique beauty of the North – Mannar, the Delfts and Jaffna are now within reach too. Head for a Southern shore, and you may spot Elephants on the dunes at Yala national park, admire the salt licks at Hambantota or stand at the ancient lighthouse in Dondra Head and ponder the fact that the next landfall south is Antarctica.

Idyllic seaside havens are yours to stay in too. Pick yours from sprawling five star luxury, small boutiques, eco villas, and private hideaways in secluded coves or traditional dwellings –different experiences, ambience and all the modern conveniences are standard of course.

Sri Lanka’s beaches are diverse: different landscapes, different peoples, different cultures and different attractions. Each coast has its own characteristics and unique charm. Take a Beach Quest, and the true taste of a Sri Lankan beach holiday is yours to enjoy.
