File:Negombo. A magnificent beach. - panoramio.jpg

This island country south of India is a year-round destination which is home to stunning yet affordable beach resorts, and among other things offering fabulous sandy beaches and some of the most exciting surf in the Indian Ocean. These beaches range from buzzing to deserted, sprinkled with fishing villages and coconut groves or backed by national parks. Some are good for swimming, others best for surfing or diving. There are turtle nesting grounds and coral reefs with multi-coloured fish. Once out of bounds due to ethnic unrest Sri Lanka's east coast welcomes increasing numbers of visitors (still, always check the political situation prior to travel).

Sri Lanka has two monsoons: April to October on the south west coast up to Colombo, November to January on the east coast. There’s still plenty of sunshine during the monsoon, but seas can be rough and humidity high. Strong currents may occur in some areas and it’s always wise to follow local advice.
