Sri Lanka enjoys a strategic position in the Indian Ocean and has served as a maritime gateway between East and West for centuries. It’s a tropical island with multiple natural harbours, surrounded by warm waters and lined with golden coastlines. Tourists from around the world visit Sri Lanka every year for its pristine beaches, wildlife parks, nature trails, lush tea mountains and its many ancient cultural sites across the country.
The island’s ports are some of the busiest in the world for commercial sea traffic, but over the years, its coastal activity, have made Sri Lanka one of the world’s most popular tropical beach vacation destinations. There’s a treasure trove of marine leisure activities for tourists to engage in, including sailing, ocean cruising, whale watching, scuba diving, snorkelling, surfing, kite surfing, jet skiing, kayaking and much more.
One of Sri Lanka’s biggest advantages as a travel destination is that it’s open to tourism all year around. When one side of the island experiences monsoon weather, the other side stays sunny. Every part of the coast is in close proximity to a different attraction on the island, making for a multi-experience getaway from sea to land. Travellers can go from watching majestic whales in the ocean to observing elephants and leopards in a wildlife sanctuary, within a few hours.
At Sail Lanka, SLYG’s leisure arm, we bring together the best of both these worlds in a sustainable manner that enables guests to experience life at sea in tropical heaven.
