Want to see the giants of the ocean? Come to Mirissa between November and mid-April for a delightful experience. But that’s not all, prepare for an exciting surf too at Weligama Beach and much more.


Try making it here by train that runs on the coastal belt between Colombo and Galle. Enjoy some of the best sunsets on the island and even get a taste of tropical modernism during your stay at Heritance Hotels.


Located towards the Northeast is the lovely beach of Uppuveli which is unspoiled and shallow calling out to those seeking the serenity of the ocean.


Home to many luxury resorts in Sri Lanka, the waters here are wonderful for water sports. It is also ideal for some fun with family and perhaps some snorkelling too.
