The Sri Lanka beaches are well known for their idyllic looks and beautiful scenery. The Paradise Beaches in Sri Lanka stretch from east to west the beaches vary from long golden ones to the perfect wind and waves.
It always a good idea to keep your map handy when traveling in Sri Lanka. The country might be a mere 65,610 km² in size but there are a lot of twists and turns in the roads in the country and if you are not careful you might end up taking a wrong turn that will send you to the totally opposite side of the island.
There are so many different zones on this little island too. Wet zones, dry zones which in turn give way to medicinal and indigenous fauna and flora that can be found growing quite unassumingly island-wide.
Make sure you also mark your travel map with the following that are MUST Do’s while in Sri Lanka – Whale watching, a visit to one (or all ) of our national parks to observe wild life in their natural habitat and maybe enjoy some camping sri lanka style, and a visit to the Sinharaja rain forest ( you can even turn that into an adventure trek!), a sea bath in the azure blue seas off the south beaches of the island, and maybe even some rustic or luxury camping – as the mood takes you – during your holidays.
If you plan on arranging your own transport once you have arrived in Sri Lanka, you have plenty of relatively inexpensive options. Arm yourself with a transport map and train schedule (also available online) and also maybe a hotel map Sri Lanka that will give you a pretty comprehensive ideas of hotels and guest houses and amenities available.
In addition to the train trek and adventuring by bus, you also have plenty of taxi options – nano cabs, taxi cars and if you are brave, the ever present tuk-tuk three wheeler. If you are not really into hiking and prefer to do your trekking in a more comfortable manner, there is also the option of vehicle hire and you can obtain a good rate on care hire on this page or shop around for a car that you can self-drive or hire with a driver/translator and guide. Please note that your insurance will have to cover you for self-drive in Sri Lanka as otherwise all expenses (in the event of an accident) will have to be borne by you.
When browsing your Sri Lanka map, look out for the weather map which will give you a general idea of climate in Sri Lanka. There is honestly no ‘best time’ to visit Sri Lanka as the island is frankly geared to give you its best all year around. If there are monsoons on the west side, the east side will have blue skies and perfect sunbathing weather. The central, more mountainous regions are sublimely cooler and generally ideal for trekking – with lots of amazing scenery and genuinely friendly people.
