Mirissa, Weligama

Beach that is a favourite with tourists as well as locals, this crescent of sand has the airs of true paradise on earth. It is the perfect place to come to perfect your tan for a day or an afternoon. You can even watch whales in the distance, so bring a pair of binoculars!

Marakolliya Beach, Tangalle

This beach is worth the detour for the beauty of the coast, more than for swimming because the water is sometimes rough. This ribbon of sand extends as far as the eye can see with its sublime mangroves and tropical flowers.

The lucky ones will have the extraordinary chance to witness the emergence of turtle eggs, a magical moment that seduces both children and adults.

Trincomalee is a colourful Sri Lankan city, so the beach offers an almost wild landscape where it is good to exile for a day or a sunny afternoon.

Arugam Bay, Colombo

Goyambokka, Tangalle

In the South of Sri Lanka, this charming golden sandy beach is hemmed by palm trees with a few shady areas and crystal clear water where the whole family can swim. Be careful, however, during July and August because the sea is sometimes a bit hectic.

Hikkaduwa, Colombo

It is one of the most trendy beaches in Sri Lanka, a few kilometres from Colombo. Diving enthusiasts will be delighted to discover the seabed of this area of the island. There are many restaurants and bars to enjoy a refreshing cocktail during a flamboyant sunset.
