EAST COAST SPECIAL
Sri Lanka’s East coast is a heaven for beach lovers and during the months from February to October some of the best beaches in the country are found in the East coast. Tricomalee, Passikuda & Arugam Bay are the more popular locations. We are happy to change the beach stay to your preferred East coast beach spot. On arrival you are taken to the cultural triangle and two nights spent to explore the UNESCO World Heritage sites which are some of the highlights of the historical sites in Sri Lanka. Then you move on to the beach stay in Passikuda in the azure blue seas of Sri Lanka. Then you stay in the Eastern Hills of Ella for two nights and do some nice hikes and walks in the hill country. The train ride from Ella to Kandy will be one of the highlights of your trip and once in Kandy you will explore the hill capital of Sri Lanka and then move on closer to the airport and stay the last night on the beach in Negombo.
