The Many Pleasures of a Holiday Rental Home or a Villa in the South Coast of Sri Lanka

Off the southern coast of the Indian subcontinent lies the country of Sri Lanka. The experience of a holiday rental home, or rather a villa, along the south coast of the country is one of the must-dos in this spectacular region. The South Coast boasts pockets of wide beaches and the best of snorkeling reefs. Immerse yourself in sand or splash the waves away, this experience will be one in a lifetime. The South Coast of Sri Lanka has stunning sandy coves that can be enjoyed at peace whilst the generic tourists flock towards the west coast. This coast stretches for 130 kilometers with picturesque beauty. Make sure to charge your cameras fully to capture this beauty for a long time to come.

Discovery and Adventure are Galore While you are in South Coast

With blazing sunshine, chilling coolers, reggae music, and garlands to wear; it will be a party all day, all night in the South Coast. The coast is not overly crowded, giving you just the perfect balance of solitude and enjoyment. Sit under a palm tree and slump your back towards the sun on a beach, or try a variety of activities like surfing and scuba diving. The waters of the South Coast beaches have perfect temperature, safe and just warm enough to enjoy a relaxing swim.

Visit the Unawatuna Reef, which is home to a plethora of fauna that can give the Great Barrier Reef a run for its money. Inland, the South Coast of Sri Lanka is home to the two most important national parks on the island. The Yala West National Park is the ideal place to hike and enjoy the true colors of what the island has to offer. You can even take up residence in a tree-top house in the park for an eco-friendly stay. Situated on the edge of the park is Sri Lanka’s holiest temple, the Kataragama, a Hindu Temple is no less than a divine experience. It is best visited in July and August during the full moon when the Perahera festival takes place.

Another one of fabulous places to visit on the South Coast is “Galle” which is Sri Lanka’s most impressive town. Once a major port, Galle shows its colonial Dutch and Portuguese history by examples of defensive walls built by the Dutch, which protected the city from the worst of the tsunami. Galle offers visitors a sensational amount of entertainment and places of interest to explore. A holiday home or villa in Galle is an ideal place that will enable a perfect experience with the vast interiors of this island nd excellent access to both the Uda Walawe Game Park and the Sinharajah Rain Forest.

There are beaches aplenty with safe swimming and world class scuba diving on the island. The Sri Lankans love food and thus there are a bunch of small restaurants that surround the beach and serve the finest of Sri Lankan cuisine at very low prices.
