Turquoise Seas – 12 Nights 13 Days

This tour starts off in style with two nights in an individual luxury chalet with its own jetty on an island in a lagoon in the northwest of the country. Then from the lushness of mangroves to coconut palms that fringe the long curving beach close to Trincomalee on the opposite, eastern, coast. There’s another beach with shallow water in the newly developed resort of Passikudah to the south and then on to a small resort within easy reach of Arugam Bay, the surfers’ paradise.

It’s back to the west coast with a drive along the southern shore to Galle and a nearby luxury boutique hotel set on the beach just north of the old colonial fort. At Kosgoda guests are based in a fully staffed holiday bungalow with its own pool. There’s an opportunity to tour Colombo before rounding off this experience of the beaches and seas with a night at a luxury beach hotel close to the airport.
