With miles of golden beaches, spectacular nature, intriguing historic sites, epic hikes, inspiring safaris, beautiful boutique hotels, and delicious cuisine, Sri Lanka’s dishes burst with flavor. This may be a tiny island, but it offers a honeymoon with many opportunities for adventure, culture, and relaxation. Located just off India’s southern coast, on this teardrop-shaped island honeymooners can enjoy powdery sands with calm lagoons just a short drive from Colombo, the capital city. For those who surf or want to learn the sport, there are legendary waves at Weligama for beginners and experienced alike. Whale watching, including the chance to spot the rarely seen blue whale, can be enjoyed here and along other south coast beaches like Dikwella and Mirissa too. On the east coast, there is off-the-beaten-path stretches ideal for secluded sunset strolls.

Exotic wildlife can be seen here too, with everything from elephants in Udawalawe National Park to sloth bears, leopards, and elephants in Yala National Park. There are also crumbling ancient cities, temples, and historic ruins scattered across the island, many of which can be found in the Cultural Triangle. In the central highlands, you can learn about the country’s unique tea heritage at the Ceylon Tea Trails.

When to Visit Sri Lanka

The best time to visit Sri Lanka depends on the destinations you plan to travel to. While it’s a relatively small island, the climate variations can be significant. Its proximity to the equator means it will be warm year-round, but with two annual monsoons, when one side is getting buckets of rain, the other is perfect for beach days. The high season is December through March, optimal for a beach honeymoon, while the shoulder seasons of September/October and April are often ideal throughout Sri Lanka. May through August is the low season with fewer crowds, with the east and north getting the best weather.
