5 Stunning Beaches for a Getaway in Sri Lanka - Private hideaways

Being an island that literally has a beach in every corner, Sri Lanka has some amazing beach destinations for you to holiday at.


Arugam Bay

Arugam Bay is a tiny fishing village that is found in the South-Eastern part of Sri Lanka. Located about 120 kilometres away from Colombo this place is home to one of the best beaches in all of South Asia. The sandy beach offers a picturesque getaway that is flanked with coconut trees and stretches of golden beaches. The fact that Arugam Bay also has one of the best places for surfers to try their hand at catching a wave makes it a popular Southern beach destination in the country. If you want to stay at popular beach hotels in Sri Lanka and if this is your first trip to the country it is better for you to co-ordinate with a local tour agent the likes of Nkar Travel House.



Hikkaduwa is a place that everybody would have heard of when they were asking people about suggestions on where to go on a beach holiday in Sri Lanka. Being an extremely active beach holiday getaway, this place is not suited for people who want a quiet vacation by the water. This place is most suited for the people who love an adventurous holiday where they get to meet a lot of new people and party all night long.



This is one of the untouched tourist hotspots of Sri Lanka though many people choose to go here for holiday. Pasikudha is one of the best beaches in the country and is located on the eastern coast. Found about 35 kilometres away from the nearest city, Pasikuda was not easy to get into until 2009 due to the Civil war issues in Sri Lanka. After the dawn of peace in the country and the better transport systems in the area, the fame of the area has vastly improved.


Nilaweli Beach

Another beach that gained popularity of the end of the civil war in the country is located only a few kilometres away from the eastern city of Trincomalee, which is also known for having a beautiful natural Harbour. This Golden Sandy beach is a major tourist spot in this part of the country. You will be able to find many luxury hotels and resorts among other attractions. Some of the most popular things to do when you are on a holiday near this area are snorkelling, windsurfing and diving.



This place is popular for people to head down to if they want to do activities like Dolphin watching and whale watching. Found in the southern part of the country you will find that the beaches here have waters that are bluer than anywhere else in Sri Lanka. You could also partake in various other watersports activities or choose to have a laidback beach holiday while in Mirissa; this place caters to both kinds of travellers, be it lazy or adventurous.
