Sri Lanka voted best island to visit in 2019

ECONOMYNEXT- Readers of Travel and Leisure magazine have ranked Sri Lanka as the best island in the world to visit in 2019.

Wrapped by its nature and surrounded by wonderful beaches, rich in archaeological areas and ancient Temples and populated by a variety of religions, where you will always meet a smiling people.

Dive with blue whales in season or watch spinner dolphins leap about in Kalpitiya.

Sri Lanka also has 5,800 wild elephants ambling about and the biggest concentration of leopards in the world. See them in Yala national park, along with sloth bears and buffalo.

Sri Lanka is famous for its Ceylon tea. Walk past lush green tea plantations on a four-hour trek up to Ella Rock for amazing views.

In the south east of the island, Arugam Bay is a crescent of golden sand that offers barrelling breaks during summer days and beach parties galore on balmy nights. In winter, drag your board to Weligama.

Sri Lanka voted best island and the world’s greatest place to visit in 2019 also by Lonely Planet, which said that its choice remained unchanged after the Easter Sunday.
