Island life calling? With sun-drenched beaches, Instagrammable scenery and an up-and-coming capital, Sri Lanka holidays tick all those boxes and more.

Wild landscapes

Sri Lanka’s nicknamed the teardrop island because of its shape, but the name makes even more sense when you take in the country’s eye-watering natural beauty. Perfect sands look out over the Indian Ocean, with animal-filled jungles and tea plantations in the opposite direction. Expect Instagram-worthy views at every turn.

Capital Colombo

Just like the country’s natural assets, its capital city’s also a kaleidoscope of colour. The old quarter, which boasts a 17th-century Portuguese fort and a 29-metre-tall clock tower, sits in sight of a soaring skyline. State-of-the-art hotels, presidential palaces and high-end eateries are all neatly lined up along the coast. Hop in a tuk tuk and take them all in during a guided tour.

Perfect for culture vultures

Ready to get out and explore? Take a coach trip into the countryside to see the country’s famous tea plantations in action during a tour and tasting session. Then lace up your walking boots for a wander around the nearby villages – the gold-topped Buddhist temples are worthy of a photo stop.
