Contemplating a visit to Sri Lanka with your little ones in tow? Then here are four reasons why you should go ahead and plan a visit to the island nation.
A rich history
With a documented history that stretches back 3,000 years with further evidence of a prehistoric settlement that is thought to date back to 125 000 years, Sri Lanka lays claim to a rich and varied history. Cities of interest include Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Kandy.
Sri Lanka is famed for its stunning beaches and the offering of fun water-based activities. If you’re keen on teaching your little ones to surf, then a visit to Sri Lanka will be ideal. Top surf destinations include Galle, Weligama and Arugambay. Mirissa beach in particular can be reached easily from villas in Mirissa including the likes of Sri Sharavi Beach Villas & Spa with ease as well.
The wilds of Sri Lanka are home to abundant flora and fauna, and a visit to the country will not be complete without taking your kids on an exciting safari at Yala National Park, home to a large leopard population.
Sri Lankan cuisine is delicious and full of flavour, simply waiting to be experienced. Do note that most foods and dishes tend to be on the spicy side, so ordering food for little ones might need to be done thoughtfully.
