Sri Lanka

Schools out for summer. Choose Sri Lanka – the perfect family holiday destination to spend some of your precious six weeks with your little ones.

Whilst Sri Lanka is part of the Indian Subcontinent its weather system means that this beautiful little island is possible to visit all year round. We have found that for the months of July and August, Sri Lanka provides one of the most spectacular choices for a family summer holiday. During these months the north of the island and the eastern beaches of Trincomalee and Passekudah are dry and bright, and sun-worshippers should head here. The beach can be easily combined with the tea country and the cultural triangle. Flights are direct from London to Colombo with Sri Lankan Airlines who offer a seamless travel experience.

Where to Stay in July?

During the summer holidays, Jungle Beach Resort is a home away from home and perfect for families. Also being the only hotel on the bay the beach is virtually deserted, with ample time to practice your Robinson Crusoe skills. With Trincomalee in easy reach, all the best excursions are a short drive away.
