Exploring Undiscovered Beaches
Off limits due to war, inaccessible due to bad roads, not really on the map: these are all factors they have kept some truly magnificent east-coast beaches off traveler itineraries. But just take one look at these beautiful ribbons of sand and yon won’t want to leave. And you may well have the strands to yourself. If Sri Lanka looked outlined in white from space, it’s due to the beaches that encircle the island. You can rarely travel any part of the coast for long without coming upon a simply stunning stretch of sand. More amazing is that many are almost empty. Two Weeks in Sri Lanka Tour is an ideal option to visit all these beaches and various other holiday things which Sri Lanka has to offer to its traveler / tourist.
Sri Lanka is a tropical island found in the deep blue waters of the Indian Ocean. The South of Colombo which is also called the ”Gold Coast” is bursting with action with resorts stretching from Mt. Lavinia (a suburb of Colombo) and continuing along the towns of Wadduwa, Kalutara, Beruwala, Bentota, Induruwa, Kosgoda, Ahungalla, Hikkaduwa, Galle, Unawatuna, Koggala, Weligama, Mirissa ,a good base for whale-watching and Dickwella, Tangalle and finally Hambantota. The southern beaches are sandier than the western ones and do not shelve deeply into the sea.
Uawatuna, which has an alluring crescent of sand, cafes overlooking the surf and perfectly blue waters luring you in.Weligama, which has beach resorts and a lively fishing village with fascinating markets. Not far away is the sandy gem of the south, Mirissa, where cute little places to stay are hidden in the palms. Head due east to the coast and the beaches at Kalkudha and Passekudah. The former is a deserted and beautiful broad strip of sand. Continue to east to Arugam bay, with its easygoing surfers ‘vibe, excellent seafood.
Continue your beach adventure 20 km north at one of Sri Lanka’s hidden gems,Vakarai Beach. You’re really off the grid here at this paradise and only have electricity few hours at night.
Go north again and you are on the idyllic natural harbor of Trincomalee. It has a rich history going back centuries that the recent war couldn’t erase. Finally, end your cultural and sandy trek at the dual beach towns of Uppuveli and Nilaveli.
