On this small island we have 1,600km of exotic beaches full of coconut and palm trees where diving is a unique and wonderful experience.
In addition, it is a place with many diving possibilities.
Both for diving among old wrecks of the First World War for the more experienced divers, and for those who are just starting and enjoying the splendid corals and fish of a thousand colors.
This is a dive tour between the months of November to April.
In the whole west coast and in the south west of the country you can make multiple dives for lovers of the seabed.
We therefore present an 11-day itinerary to immerse yourself in the Negambo, Colombo and Galle area.
It will be a pleasure for you to dive among hundreds of pigfish or see the impressive snapper, Napoleon fish, huge rays or groupers.
Read our 11-day dive itinerary that Eden Travels created for you by combining diving with other activities such as relaxing on the beach or whale watching.
In addition, Sri Lanka has many natural parks where you can go on exciting safaris to see leopards or elephants such as Yala National Park, Minneriya, Kaudulla, Wilpattu, Udawalawe, among many.
With Sri Lanka being such a small island, it is very easy to combine diving, surfing or kitesurfing activities with a visit to the historic Galle Fort or to see the famous stilt fishermen in Weligama.
And if you want to relax after an exciting day of diving, what better way than to let yourself be carried away by the hands of an Ayurvedic massage expert.
Sri Lanka is such a special and accessible destination that on the same day you can observe the huge blue whales in the morning and in the afternoon see our feline king – the leopard.
Nothing more exciting for nature lovers.
