March is a time for celebration, to begin with the Big Match madness and Nidahas Trophy. The age-old rivalry between schools continue in various locations and mingle in the action of the papare beats and tooting of the trumpets. For adventure seekers, the Devil’s Staircase in Ohiya is a must visit with options to hike, cycle or drive a 4x4. The hidden beaches of Rumassala is an ideal spot to get your tan on or relax with beautiful vistas of the surroundings. Head to Jaffna and enjoy a boat ride to Nainativu and visit the religious sites or simply relish a Sri Lankan style breakfast by the beach. One can find many restaurants catering a lavish spread of healthy and delicious food.
