Beach (Must in 4 Nights 5 Days Sri Lanka Package)
First things first, the best part of Sri Lanka are the beaches. Golden sands that feel like clouds under your feet, warm ocean water that kiss your toes while you walk along the coast and green swaying coconut trees that border the perfect beaches almost make you feel like you’re walking in a postcard! The beaches around the island; whether in the North, South, East or West, are all unique, each with their own unique charm to it. Beaches on the western and southern side of the island are more popular as they are easier to reach with numerous transport options, whereas the beaches of the eastern and northern regions are secluded and usually harder to reach as it’s away from the airport and the main commercial capital; Colombo. The closest beach from the airport is Negombo Beach, although it’s fairly crowded towards evening. Beaches on the south coast are ideal for swimming, snorkelling, watersports and whale watching! It’s quite the variety! If you’re heading to the east and northern regions the beaches are most known for surfing; especially Arugam Bay – a popular spot for surfers from around the world.
With over 26 accessible national parks and protected reserves, Sri Lanka is teeming with exotic flora and fauna. The most popular national parks to visit for those interested in spotting leopards, sloth bears, elephants, peacocks, wild buffalos, crocodiles and a variety of birds is the Yala National Park, Minneriya National Park, Udawalawe National Park, Kaudulla National Park and Kumana National Park; to name a few! Embark on an exciting jeep safari through the rugged terrain and keep your eyes peeled and your mouths sealed as you try your best to spot the park’s most elusive residents.
The island has a rich history dating way back before monarchical rule. During your adventures in Sri Lanka, you’ll come across a number of historic sites, buildings, monuments and even hotels and houses, with an interesting story to tell. Galle, for example, is a historic town with a stunning fort located on the southern coast of the island. Galle Fort and its ancient rampart are beautiful and packed with history as it was built by the Portuguese during their occupation of the island and later fortified by the Dutch and British. Other important, historic areas to visit is the colonial town of Nuwara Eliya; often dubbed as Little England due to its many similarities, the ancient city of Sigiriya, Dambulla, Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura, to name a few. Sigiriya is a rock fortress built by an ancient king, while Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura were one of the first two capital cities of the country.
You can lie on a golden beach today and be freezing your socks off the next day when you’re in Sri Lanka. A drive to the hills of the island will welcome you with a cold climate and plenty of verdant mountains to ease your eyes. Nuwara Eliya, Ella and Kandy are three of the most famous cities in the hill areas. Here, you’ll be able to climb mountains and go hunting for waterfalls that are hidden in jungles and forests; making it perfect for adventure and nature lovers. Some of the must-visit places include Horton Plains, Mini Worlds End and Ella Rock; to name a few! Horton Plains is a protected nature reserve and has a few attractions in store for visitors, from the cascading Bakers Falls to World’s End. Ensure you carry a pair of comfortable shoes that will help you trek/hike or walk long distances on uneven, rugged terrain!
On the last leg of your 4 nights 5 days Sri Lanka itinerary, make sure you stop by Colombo for at least half a day. Immerse yourself in the bustling city life, get treated at a spa, enjoy a cocktail or the local beer and get your souvenir shopping done, before making way your way to the airport.
