12 NIGHT SRI LANKA HERITAGE & BEACH BREAK

Sri Lanka is spectacular. A mix of adventure & beaches, temples, fortresses & chock-a-block of UNESCO world heritage sites. Sri Lanka’s history, culture, wildlife and natural beauty are undeniably alluring. It’s one of those places if you haven’t been yet, you should.

In our opinion, this is the ultimate route for travelling Sri Lanka because you can do it on the leanest budget or in extravagant luxury style while still experiencing the best of what Sri Lanka has to offer.

You will begin your journey by heading to the history-rich Sigiriya and staying 3 nights where you will get the opportunity to climb Sigiriya, visit the Golden Cave Temple and experience an Elephant Safari.

Onto Kandy, but only for one night where you can visit the Sri Dalada Maligawa (Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic) and have a spot of shopping.

The next morning, based on availability, you will be able to take the train from Kandy to Ella. This train ride is said to be one of the most scenic and beautiful journeys in the world, and we totally agree! Spending the next 3 nights in Ella you will have the chance to climb Little Adams Peak, watch the train passing at Nine Arches Bridge and visit Tea Plantations.

It’s beach time for the next 4 nights and some of the most beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka are on offer for you to choose from. Crystal-clear water, palm tree-lined coastline, surfing, yoga and just a well-deserved time to relax.

We have left your final night in Sri Lanka to be had in the country’s capital, Colombo. You can spend the night enjoying stylish eateries, galleries or non-stop shopping. Colombo is thriving and a wonderful place to draw an end to your amazing holiday.

We pride ourselves on delivering unique guest experiences, elevating traditional, popular tourist attractions with our signature touches from personal experience. Your itinerary is specifically tailored to meet your needs.

  • I book and manage lots and lots of Sri Lankan holidays each year ranging from honeymoons to family getaways. One of the most common questions I get is "should I/we pre-book our activities prior to traveling?"
.
Personally, I don't pre-book our activities because I like to have a little freedom to change my mind or even better, meet a local that can give me a genuine insight into the activity & recommend exactly what I should do & when. 
Sri Lanka is great for this because the people are so friendly & accommodating. .
If possible, one activity you should pre-book are the train journeys. They sell out very quickly! .

  • Is there much to say, except... "take me there!" 😍
.
This is Jetwing Kaduruketha and it is located in the south of Sri Lanka, near Ella. .
This is a gorgeous eco-friendly hotel that is worth adding onto your itinerary 💚

  • Stilt Fishing is one of the most interesting traditional fishing methods in Sri Lanka, and travellers love them 🎣
.
The beautiful sight of fishermen perched on poles as they fish skillfully during dawn, noon and dusk, can now be seen along the southern coast in towns such as Koggala, Kaththaluwa and Ahangama. .
But don't be fooled... alot of the time now, these stilt fishermen are just posing for you to get a great photo, so remember to carry some cash 🤑

Okay yes, they aren't Sri Lankan... But... You can get Dosai in Sri Lanka and I LOVE IT!
.
Dosai comes from Southern India. It's a pancake made out of rice and lentil batter, naturally fermented overnight.
.
This is traditionally a vegetarian dish, but all meat lovers will love it... I guarantee 😍
My favourite is Ghee Dosai 👌

  • Ever wanted to stay on your own private island... even just for one night? 
Well yes you can, in Weligama, Sri Lanka. We did so a couple of nights ago & it was great!!
.
You can catch a boat to the island, which is great for luggage but you can also walk/swim across! It's not deep water & it adds to the adventure.
.
Such a cool little experience we had ❤

  • Should you get a driver when traveling Sri Lanka? 🚗
.
I say YES!!! If you are doing a lot of traveling. For example visiting Sigiriya, Kandy, Beach, Ella, Colombo. Then I definitely say yes!
.
The reason being... the drivers are so helpful, patient and have the best insights of what to see & where to eat plus you can travel at your own pace. Yes, it is more expensive but I think worth it.
.
If you need a driver or just interested in getting a price, send me an email & I'll get it sorted. I work with the BEST company who also drives my family around.
