Best places in Sri Lanka!
Sri Lanka is a perfect place to travel! There are plenty of things to do. The country is very diverse. Everyone will find here something for themselves. There are beautiful, breathtaking beaches, perfect surf spots, mountains and lots of unique cultures everywhere! If you want to stay active and you like adventures here, you will find a list of the best places in Sri Lanka!
Here is the list of the best places in Sri Lanka and what to do there:
Weligama – surfing
Sri Lanka is well known for its perfect surf conditions. If you are a beginner, Weligama is an ideal place to start your adventure with surfing. You can choose from many surf schools based in Weligama.
Ella – Hiking
Ella is one of my favourite cities in Sri Lanka. It is a beautiful, little city located in the mountains. You can find there a lot of shops with local souvenirs and delicious food. But my favourite activity there is definitely hiking! Start with the short hike to Little Adam Peak- takes around 40 minutes. If you have more time, there are plenty of long hikes waiting for you there!
Nine Arches Bridge
This place is amazing. Nine Arches Bridge is laying in the beautiful scenery of tea plantations and mountains. Be sure to wait and see the train passing. Nine Arches Bridge is definitely one of the best places in Sri Lanka!
Sea Turtle Conservation Project
Make sure to visit the Induruwa Sea Turtle Conservation Project on your way from Colombo to Galle. It is a place where wild animals go when they get injured. They get proper help here and are being realised to the wild if possible. I always try to only activities that do not hurt animals, and I am a big animal lover!
Hiriketiya Beach- Snorkelling and surfing
Hiriketiya Beach is small pictures beach. It is an excellent spot to rent a surfboard or go snorkelling. Unfortunately, it is already quite crowded so make sure to get there early if you want to see something interesting under the water! I was lucky to see there a small shark during my morning snorkelling!
Udawalawe National Park- Safari
Udawalawe National Park is a place to go if you are looking for a safari experience. Yala National Park- the bigger park in Sri Lanka is way too crowded. There are hundreds of jeeps scaring all animals and making this experience terrible.
Colombo- Tuk- tuk ride
I am not the biggest fan of busy and crowded cities. Especially when it is so hot there. Colombo has its charm, and as it is the city you are more likely to land while travelling to Sri Lanka it is a good idea to take some advantage of it! Tuk-Tuk ride is must do there! It is amusing, and you will see the whole city!
Tangalle- Staying at the beach hut
Tangalle is the most paradise- looking place in Sri Lanka I have visited. There are a few nice hotels that offer beach huts. It is stunning there! And a perfect place to relax.
Hope you enjoyed the list of the best places in Sri Lanka!
