Although Sri Lanka is a true year-round destination, with alternating monsoon seasons and consistently warm weather, there is something magical about Sri Lanka summer holidays. A monsoon tends to hit the southwest between May and the end of August and mainly affects the west coast and the south of the country, including Yala, Galle and Hill Country. Instead, at this time of year head north east to explore beautiful elephant-frequented beaches, culture filled cities and vast wilderness brimming with wildlife. Although you might experience similar weather to a drizzly UK day in April, Hill Country
is a must when on your summer holiday in Sri Lanka. The rolling hillsides blanketed with emerald tea plants make for the ultimate backdrop for a cosy cuppa, and Nuwara Eliya’s quaint Little England and its England-esque houses is a great place to explore. Tour the Cultural Triangle and venture to places such as Sigiriya Rock and Dambulla cave temple complex or head to the east coast for some sun and snorkelling.

Our trip to Sri Lanka was outstanding, and Frances was exceptional in catering to our wants and needs. The hotels were excellent and the wildlife spotting in Wilpattu National Park was a real highlight.
