6.Surf and Chill
Sri Lanka is lucky to have beautiful weather and surf 365 days a year. During high season in the east, surf in Arugam Bay is world famous. At this time, the west coast has no surf and less good weather. The season flips during the other half of the year.
East, South or West, there are always beaches in Sri Lanka to get some surf, tan or relaxation at the coastline.
Sri Lanka is lucky to have a great selection of wildlife and marine life. Leopards, elephants, sloth bears and on the coastline the blue whale and dolphins. Animals are all over the country. The country has over 26 national parks with very good tourism infrastructure. It is one, or maybe the best country in Asia to see so many different species.

2.Hike to the top of Diyaluma Falls
