History, culture and picturesque beaches off the tourist track

The East Coast is one of Sri Lanka’s most up and coming areas and with beautiful swathes of beach giving way to the calm shallow waters, it’s easy to see why. Relatively undiscovered, it’s still charming and relaxed. Not only that but it’s also home to some of the best beaches in Sri Lanka and its popularity is only going to increase, so now is the time to visit. There are plenty of hotels to choose from and you can now fly in from Colombo with Cinnamon Air. For families it’s ideal, not only do the calm waters make it ideal for children, but the seasonality is very similar to ours, meaning our summer is also theirs, perfect for escaping over the summer holidays.
