Sri Lanka Honeymoons

Sri Lanka is the place for tropical island honeymoons with a difference! This jewel in the Indian Ocean not only has more than its fair share of beautiful beaches, but an extraordinary array of wildlife, National Parks, and UNESCO cultural sites to go with them. The island is ideal for tailoring a diverse honeymoon itinerary. You might want to camp in deluxe safari tents ready for dawn trips to see leopards, elephants, monkeys and all manner of birds, or wander around ruined cities so old that you'll be amazed at their complex designs and exquisite art. And then there's the food - more curry styles than you can shake a spoon at, and an explosion of street-food flavours. Top it all off with gorgeous hotels and boutique lodges and you have all the ingredients for the trip of a lifetime.

'Always a popular months for honeymooners, August is a great time to travel to Sri Lanka. The weather will be at its best on the lesser developed beaches of the east coast and you will also be able to witness the spectacle that is the ‘Elephant Gathering’ when up to 350 elephants congregating in Minneriya National Park, close to the ruins in the Cultural Triangle region.'
