Where to go in Sri Lanka
With the best weather across the entire country, March is considered the best month to travel to Sri Lanka. It’s mainly hot and dry, with little rainfall, so no matter what you’re looking to do in Sri Lanka – you’ll have the weather to do it.
The beaches of the southwest are still perfect for sunbathing, while rain showers are few and far between in the northeast as the monsoon season has come to an end. Temperatures are rising and the beaches in this region are getting ready for visitors. Kalpitiya, in the northwest, also sees the start of its kite surfing season.
In terms of scenery, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya and the surrounding tea regions are at their most spectacular in March. And conditions are great for exploring Dambulla, Polonnaruwa and the other sights of the famous Cultural Triangle.
Wildlife sightings in Sri Lanka’s national parks are also wonderful in March. Plenty of leopards can be spotted out enjoying the sunshine in Yala National Park and you’ll be able to see plenty of elephants in Udawalawe. All things considered, March really is a fantastic time to visit, bringing you the very best of Sri Lanka.
