Beach vibes in Sri Lanka

by Jan 27, 2022

Pearl of the Indian Ocean is famous for its beautiful beaches, and Sri Lanka is one of the most popular beach destinations. Paradise Island has two monsoon seasons affecting different areas at different times of the year. Therefore, advance planning to visit Sri Lanka is a must. Visitors should avoid beaches in the west and southwest from May through September and East and North from October through February.
