Holidays in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has a unique essence that embraces the modern world but still remains true to its ‘old world’ charm. This captivating destination combines fascinating wildlife, sacred sights and flawless beaches to create an island adventure like no other.

Rich in tradition, religion plays an important part in the islands history and culture, with the strong colonial influence evident throughout the cuisine and architecture. Yet there is more to this island than meets the eye, from surfing and diving in the dazzling waters to creating unforgettable memories on safari. The sheer beauty provides a stunning backdrop for holidays in Sri Lanka. Visit ancient World Heritage Sites, filled with mystery, embrace local religion on a Buddhist retreat or explore the verdant hills of Sri Lanka’s tea plantations.
