Discover a tea plantation & factory, be amased by the beaches such as Mirissa, for whale watching, Weligama for surfing, Habaraduwa for a morning run and to visit the Turtle sanctuary, Miripenna to swim with the turtles and watch the beautiful sunset at a tropical beach club. 

Get lost in the jungle and around the waterfall of Sinharaja forest reserve. Explore Koggala, its Stilt Fishermen and Lake where you can take a boat trip and island-hop to see monkeys and visit a cinnamon workshop, a Buddhist temple or dangle your feet into a net and experience ‘a foot spa’ and for the ​Nature-lovers you will fall in love with the Udawalawe National Park, to spot elephants and more then 200 varieties of birds.
