Our East Coast Sri Lanka holiday is perfect for those wanting to travel during the UK summer months and take advantage of the wonderfully deserted beaches of Passekudah and Trincomalee on the eastern side of the island.
Begin your holiday by exploring the highlights of the Cultural Triangle and Minneriya National Park, followed by an extended stay on the lesser visited east coast.
