Sri Lanka Catamaran Tour
This 6-night catamaran cruise makes exploring the southern coast of Sri Lanka almost effortless. When you’re not sailing the open seas, you’ll be basking in the sun on secluded beach coves, wandering the World Heritage Site of Galle and watching blue whales play beneath the surf.
Tourists tend to flock to the Southeast Asian island country of Sri Lanka like bees to honey. Its tropical climate, to-die-for beaches and exquisite tea plantations earned it the title of “finest island of its size in the world” according to Marco Polo.
The South of Sri Lanka is no exception. A hot spot for surfing, the tepid waters are like catnip to wave-chasers who swarm year after year in search of the perfect swell. The wildlife is varied and colourful (both in and out of the water) and white, glossy beaches are backed by green-crested hills, sprouting up against the horizon.
This package holiday will see you set sail on a catamaran and explore the crème de la crème of the teal-colored Southern Sri Lankan shoreline and its plethora of beaches. If you’re someone who feels at home on the water and fancies swapping the London smog for Sri Lanka’s blue skies, this might be the getaway you’ve been waiting for.
For six nights you’ll dart from dinky fishing villages to quaint beach coves and cover miles of tropical coastline. Stop off in the colonial fort city of Galle, a World Heritage Site and home to the mighty Kalutara and Seenigama Temples and a range of Buddhist-inspired art.
Soak up the sun on the beaches of Talalla and Kudawella where silky-soft sand begs to be touched and bulbous palm trees rustle in the salty breeze. With water this warm, the prospect of paddle-boarding and surfing seems all too inviting…
The coast of Dondra and Mirissa are bursting with all manner of colourful sea creatures which wriggle and frolic beneath the surf. Spend a day whale-watching and scanning the horizon for the largest mammal in the world, the mesmerizing blue whale.
After days spent perched on a sunbed enjoying the sun-drenched shoreline, succulent barbecues and tasty seafood meals will be served for dinner. You’ll quickly realize that alfresco dining beneath the twinkle of the stars is the perfect way to round off a jam-packed day of beach-hopping.
