About Sri Lanka

Known as the Teardrop of India, Sri Lanka enchants visitors with its palm-fringed beaches, lush tea plantations and heart-warming hospitality. The country is surprisingly compact, making it easy to hop between national parks, barefoot beach towns and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Things to do in Sri Lanka

Formerly known as Ceylon, Sri Lanka produces some of the finest tea in the world. Wandering through the emerald green tea plantations of Ella and Nuwara Eliya, you’ll be retracing the footsteps of pioneers such as Thomas Lipton.

Sri Lanka is home to a cast of tooth-and-claw wildlife, including its very own subspecies of leopard. Yala National Park promises some of the best wildlife spotting opportunities in the country, with the chance to spot elephants, crocodiles, sloth bears and of course, big cats. Sri Lanka is also one of the only places in the world you can spot blue whales.

If you’re dreaming of golden sand and palm-fringed beaches, you’ve come to the right place. Learn to surf in Unawatuna, sip cocktails in Mirissa and head north for laid-back vibes in Trincomalee. Don’t forget to stay hydrated with a freshly cut coconut.

The food in Sri Lanka is incredible, with locals taking immense pride in their local dishes. From homemade roti bread loaded with coconut sambol, Sri Lanka is guaranteed to tantalise your taste buds.

Sri Lanka packs more than 2,000 years of history into its tiny footprint. There are multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites to discover, including the ancient city of Sigiriya and the charm-soaked colonial fortress of Galle.

Getting around Sri Lanka

Colombo International Airport is the first point of call for most travellers visiting Sri Lanka. In the city, tuk-tuks are generally the fastest and cheapest way to get around, while taxis, rideshare services and private drivers are also available. Trains are a quintessential way to travel in Sri Lanka, including world-renowned routes such as Ella to Kandy.

Facts about staying in Sri Lanka

Find useful tips and insights about staying in Sri Lanka to help you make the most of your experience. FAQs were last updated on 21 February 2024.
  • What is the best place in Sri Lanka for bars and restaurants?

    If you’re looking for fine dining and nightlife in Sri Lanka, make the island nation’s vibrant capital, Colombo, your first stop. Many Colombo hotels feature bars, restaurants and lounges, making it easy to enjoy some nightlife just a few steps away from your comfortable hotel room. For example, the Colombo Court Hotel & Spa is home to the Loft Lounge Bar. This industrial-chic rooftop bar offers stunning views of the city, perched atop the hotel. Those keen to venture outside of the capital may appreciate the laid-back charm of Hiriketiya. This surf town surrounded by nature is so small that it’s generally considered a part of Dickwella. However, it also offers some of Sri Lanka’s finest meals and unique cocktails, which is why it’s increasingly becoming known as its own little slice of paradise. Hotels like Sea Port Hiriketiya and Salt House will place you within walking distance of Hiriketiya’s award-winning Smoke n’ Bitters and other popular bars and restaurants.

  • What is the best place for a family vacation in Sri Lanka?

    For families with kids, there’s an endless list of things to do in Sri Lanka. Animal lovers may wish to add the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage to their itinerary. Here, you can see baby elephants bathing and playing in the river. Pinnewala is also a wonderful spot for a family picnic. A stay at the Hotel Elephant Park will place you right on the river with views of the elephants. For an authentic cultural experience, it’s also worth taking the family on a tour of a traditional village like Dambana. Here, you can discover what jungle living is all about and taste the staple foods of the Vedda people. Dambana is nestled in the Maduru Oya National Park, so it’s worth exploring the nature reserve and the Maduru Oya Ancient Sluice while there. Staying at local Sri Lankan hotels like Explorer By Eco Team will give you plenty of time to enjoy the region.

  • What are the best things to do and see in Sri Lanka?

    The Yala National Park Safari is a great place to get a taste of Sri Lanka’s wildlife, allowing visitors to catch a glimpse of elephants, aquatic birds, leopards, and more. You can opt for local Sri Lankan accommodation within the national park, like Cinnamon Wild Yala, or stay in nearby Kirinda, close to the beach and safari park. You can enjoy some of the most breathtaking things in Sri Lanka, from the comfort of a carriage on the Kandy to Ella Train. This rail journey takes you through the heart of the island nation, and you can board in the nation’s capital, Colombo. There are plenty of stops along the way, allowing you to explore tea plantations, waterfalls, and Hill Country villages like Haputale. Once you step off the train in Ella, it’s worth soaking up the relaxing atmosphere of this hill town with a stay at a hotel with stunning natural views, like the Ella’s Edge Resort.

  • Where are the best places to stay for surfing in Sri Lanka?

    Sri Lanka is famous for its surf, and the beauty of this island nation is that it has beaches suitable for all skill levels. Keep in mind that the time of year will dictate where the best surf is. If you’re off on a summer adventure between November and March, spots on the southwest coast like Mirissa and Weligama generally offer good surfing conditions. If you’re travelling between April and October, spots on the southeast coast like Arugam Bay, Crocodile Rock, and the more secluded Okanda are the places to go for quality surf. From the Arugam Bay Resort to the Villa Atulya at Ocean’s Edge in Mirissa, you’ll find plenty of hotels in Sri Lanka placing you right on the beach, just steps away from the surf.

  • Where is the best place to stay in Sri Lanka?

    When visiting Sri Lanka, consider checking out Colombo, Jaffna, and Negombo as some of the most sought after locations.
