The weather on Sri Lanka’s south-west coast is generally at its best from December to April. However, year-round the currents can be strong so many beaches are more suited to surfing than swimming.

If you are seeking more space and privacy there are some beautiful private houses on the South Coast that come complete with staff, including a chef, allowing you a flexible and personal shared experience with friends and family.
