About

Recommended for:
Beach | History & culture

While many visitors might head straight for the World Heritage delights of Sri Lanka’s northern and central regions, the country’s southern coast holds equal appeal. From the Dutch-colonial gems of historic Galle to the white-sand delights of Bentota and its surrounding coast, this 10-day itinerary, which includes the services of driver-guide, takes in the best of this beautiful and fascinating region.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK/Colombo

Depart the UK for Colombo.

Day 2
Colombo

An overnight flight brings you to Sri Lanka’s modern capital where leafy boulevards and lively shopping streets are a wonderful introduction to the country’s colonial charms. After settling into your hotel, you’ll have a day to explore at your own pace, or take the chance to relax and recover from your journey.

Stay: Galle Face Hotel, Colombo (Deluxe)

Days 3-5
Galle

Swap Columbo’s big city bustle for Galle’s UNESCO-listed waterfront fort, gateway to a wonderful selection of nearby beaches as you head south along the coast with your driver guide. On day four, an expert-led guided tour will take you to the fort’s 17th century ramparts that were at one time the centrepiece of Dutch colonial rule. Visit the Dutch Museum and church and see intricate workmanship played out in delicate handmade lace and ebony carvings. Day five is left free to expore the surrounding areas, with the beaches of Unawatuna and Marissa just a short drive away. 

Stay: The Fort Printers (Superior)

Meals: B

Days 6-9
Bentota

Return north along Sri Lanka’s palm-fringed coast to the popular resort of Bentota. As you check into your Dutch colonial-inspired beachfront hotel you can look forward to four full days of rest and relaxation on the white sands of Ventura Beach. With two outdoor pools, a day spa and water sports on offer you’d be forgiven for staying put, but the daily services of your driver guide – up to a maximum of 40 kilometres a day – means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get out and explore the local region’s Buddhist temples and colourful seaside communities.

Stay: Avani Bentota (Superior)

Meals: B

Day 10
Colombo/UK

Transfer back to the international airport on the outskirts of the capital for your flight home, arriving the same day.

Meals: B
