Overview

Spend a week sailing along Sri Lanka’s east coast and you’ll see why this island’s starting to emerge as a must-visit destination. Stand-up paddle along deserted beaches, visit Koneswaram Temple, and snorkel in Pigeon Island National Park. When you’re ready to chill out, head back to the catamaran or to the shore where countless untouched beaches await. Don’t just listen to the travel buzz, see it for yourself.
