Sri Lanka is such a beautiful island filled with amazing landscapes and mesmerising beaches. Below are some of the things you should keep in mind when planning your unforgettable romantic escapade.
Why choose Sri Lanka?
Everyone does beaches and mountains for their honeymoon. Sri Lanka is so diverse in climate and small in area, you can enjoy the beaches, mountains, rivers, rainforests and even sand dunes all at once!
Getting here and travelling within the country
The best way to reach Sri Lanka is by air. You can get direct flights from many destinations across the world to the Bandaranaike International Airport. Trains are available to almost all cities on the island and you can always catch a tuk-tuk to get around easily. If you’re worried about public transport because of the prevailing pandemic Sri Lanka car rentals offer great self-driving options such as Malkey Rent A Car.
Places to visit
Some of the most exciting places to visit with your better half are Ella, Nuwara Eliya, Mirissa and of course Trincomalee. Ella and Nuwara Eliya are filled with lush green tea estates and the most romantic resorts and hotels. Mirissa and Trincomalee are two of the country’s most beautiful coastlines with sparkling blue water, soft sand and beautiful corals.
Things to do
As mentioned above, there are plenty of different places to check out in Sri Lanka. This means there are a great number of fun things to try out as well. If you visit the hill country or the tea estates down south, you can go hiking or camping in the tropical rainforests and mountains. The views from up those hills are to die for and the climate is soothing as well. If you visit the coastal areas you can go surfing, snorkelling, whale and dolphin watching and if you are licenced, diving.
