Sri Lanka Honeymoon
A honeymoon in Sri Lanka is an extraordinary experience. Located off the southern tip of India, the island is one of the Indian Ocean’s best kept secrets.
Why Sri Lanka Honeymoons?
Couples who choose to book a Sri Lanka honeymoon get to experience something a little different and unique to the norm. Sri Lanka has gorgeous and unspoiled beaches, but it also boasts a diverse culture, exotic wildlife and crumbling ancient ruins.
Things for Couples To Do
- Take a trip to the city of Kandy to see the spectacular traditional singers and Kandyan dancers wearing vibrant headdresses, dancing to native percussions.
- Uda Walewe National Park is a fantastic option for animal lovers, with elephants and buffalo roaming freely through the massive plains. Even wandering through the park is an incredible experience, and is a worthwhile addition to your Sri Lanka honeymoon.
- Visit a working tea plantation in Nuwara Eliya, enjoy a Sri Lankan cuppa and then gear up for a hike along the renowned “World’s End” walking trek. Prepare for breath-taking views and cascading waterfalls like you’ve never seen before.
- One Indian Ocean Island not enough? Why not take in the Maldives too, at just a 40 minute flight away?
Best Time to Visit
Dec-Mar: This is the best time for a Sri Lanka honeymoon on the west coast, but the dynamic weather of the island means the climate varies a lot. Along the coast Sri Lanka enjoys an average temperature of 30°C. Further inland, the scenic mountainous terrain lends to cooler temperatures of about 19°C.
Apr-Sep: This is when the weather would usually be more suitable on the east coast. Temperatures stay warm throughout the year, however.
The Thai Pongal festival, which celebrates the renewal of life and prosperity, takes place in January every year. Sri Lanka transforms into a rainbow of colours, dancing and singing – it’s well worth seeing.
Why We Love Sri Lanka Honeymoons
“Sri Lanka is an incredible honeymoon destination. I loved the Sigiriya Rock Fortress, it’s a breath-taking piece of history and culture. The climb to the top is nearly 1000 steps, which can be very tiring, but it’s definitely worth it.”
