With newlyweds wandering far afield these days to find a suitably glorious but uncrowded post-nuptial paradise, it's a relief to find one this accessible that offers so much variety: a honeymoon in Sri Lanka is amongst the most versatile on our books.
On the coast, you'll find a mainly undeveloped beach paradise, the perfect place to lounge, relax and recover from the months of - dare we say it - manic event-organisation that preceded your wedding day.
When the novelty of your unblemished, tourist-free tropical beach has worn off, you can wander easily inland to explore the lush interior; the island's numerous National Parks contain UNESCO-protected rainforest, some of the most remarkable ancient engineering you'll ever see, and some of the largest Buddhist temples ever built.
For animal lovers, there's an abundant leopard population, Asian elephants, langurs and lorises, amongst a huge list of species, with a range of wildlife and adventure experiences available. Sri Lanka honeymoon highlights include leopard safaris, elephant sanctuary visits, and private luxury camping close to the National Parks.
More permanent accommodation can be found in charming Colonial boutique hotels, tucked away both in coastal towns like beautiful fortified Galle, and the jungle-clad, mountainous interior. The city of Kandy, meanwhile, is known for its intriguing antique shops, a great selection of restaurants, and excellent walks in the nearby hills and picturesque tea estates.
