Surrounded on all sides by the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka has plenty of beautiful beaches for you to retreat to when the tropical temperatures get a bit too close for comfort. Beach bums can catch some rays at a quieter beach such as Passekudah Bay, there’s SCUBA diving for all you adventure enthusiasts at Hikkaduwa and party people can make themselves at home on the dancefloors of lively Unawatuna beach. Sandy shores, beautiful views and sumptuous seafood are guaranteed at all of our recommended beaches – and don’t forget to Instagram a sunset to make all your friends jealous.
