Year-Round Sun, Sea and Sand

Palm-fringed, golden sandy beach, Sri Lanka

Our Sun, Sea & Sand Sri Lanka – East/West & South Coasts itinerary is a 15-day taster holiday for lotus eaters!

Depending on the monsoon season, the beaches on either the east coast (May to October) or west and south coasts (November to April) are best. Our chosen east coast beaches are Nilaveli, Passikudah and Arugam Bay, while our west and south coasts favourites are Kalpitiya, Bentota and Tangalle.

The accommodation is a combination of iconic hotels and a beachside villa (East Coast) or a tented pavilion, villa and intimate beach hotel (West and South Coasts). Upgrades to boutique beach hotels, oceanfront villas and luxurious seaside escapes are all on offer in Sri Lanka – please contact us for more details. 

Unlike Sri Lanka, most visitors stay in one island resort for their entire time in Maldives and all resorts offer a beach holiday, naturally!

Remember that all of our holidays to Sri Lanka and Maldives are truly tailor made with no set dates, accommodation, duration, routes or visits, so each holiday is unique and specially created to your very own interests and requirements.

Take a look below at the outline itinerary as an inspiration for creating your very own ideal beach holiday.

“Thank you so much for organising such an excellent holiday. We had a super time and Buckingham Place [Tangalle] was a fabulous final stop!”
