Sri Lanka is internationally famed for its natural wonders providing breathtaking landscape and much more that cannot be described in words. It is an island full of exotic destinations comprising exciting wildlife, serene backwaters, shimmering beaches etc. It is famously called the tear drop island primarily because of its geographical shape over the deep blue the ocean. This incredible country amidst the azure waters has earned its tourism reputation by being a diver’s paradise. The island inhabits over a thousand species of fish and a mesmerizing marine life in the surrounding waters. Tourists love to explore these two as there is high visibility in the water throughout the year.
Sri Lanka comprises some fascinating curved shaped beaches that are beautifully separated by rocky shores. The long sandy stretch of the coastline of this island houses some of the best beaches present in South Asia. It further makes it an ideal swimming destination as the shallow water stretch extends hundreds of meters from the land. All the beaches have been blessed by the naturally designed landscape with shinning sand, coconut and palm edged highlands also comprises minerals like Ilmenite and Throacite which makes the color of the sand on some of the beaches of Sri Lanka partially black and not to forget the corals which makes it a colorful delight. Beaches are the delight of this island. However, it also consists of some fascinating fishing villages which are located at a distance from the beach front which is also worth a visit while enjoying the beauty of this place.
The most prominent among all the beaches in Sri Lanka is the Unawatuna beach. The second in line is the Bentota and Induruwa beach. These two beaches are among the favorites and most visited by the tourists while Mirissa on the south coast is lesser known. It doesn’t have much tourist gatherings or hectic business but the local traders use this place to trade for themselves. Apart from these three beaches Arugam bay is also included in the top beach list of this island.
Beside these magnificently charming beaches one should also explore the countryside away from the coast. Stepping onto the inland, the country side accommodates the lush and evergreen pastures of rice fields and palm groves that will definitely proved to be a serene beauty for nature lovers. Sri Lanka has a well known status for its Ayurvedic treatments, salons, recuperation and regeneration resorts that prove to be a relaxing trip to the tourists and accommodating a wide variety of Ayurvedic treatments too.
