Sri Lanka beaches

One of the best destinations from the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka beaches are the ideal destination for surfers and beach lovers. Spread all around the island, the beaches are the perfect place to relax and learn how to surf. The currents from the water are pretty strong so most of the waters around the island are considered to be a little too dangerous for swimming, but perfect for surfing.

The good thing is that no matter when you visit Sri Lanka, you will always find a beach to spend your holidays, because of the island location and monsoon cycle. So, first of all, pick your dates and after that, based on the monsoon calendar, pick your beach. What you need to know before you go is that on the island there are two kinds of beaches: ones very popular among tourists with facilities and bars close by, and other ones wilder, without anything in the nearby, perfect for those who are looking for a more authentic experience.
