- Nuwara Eliya
Sri Lanka is a year round holiday destination, hence any time is holiday time in Sri Lanka. Although there are two monsoons that affect the country every year, the rains are regional. So if one coastal area is experiencing monsoons, the other coasts have ideal weather conditions for a holiday.
The Northeast monsoon in Sri Lanka affects the north and east coastlines during the months of October to February. At this time, it is best to visit the south west coast. From May to September is when the south west coast is hit with rains and the north and east regions are better for holiday-ing.
With that being said, rains in Sri Lanka are only for a short period of time. So even if one morning you wake up to a rainy day, high chances are that the sun will come out later that day or at least the next day. Hence your holiday, at any time of the year, in any part of the country, will not be sabotaged with rain.

Great tour of Sri Lanka with a great local expert
We had 8 days travelling around Sri Lanka with our guide Lasantha for our honeymoon and we had an incredible time.
Lasantha was welcoming and easy going during the entire trip and always made us comfortable and made everything easy for us. He even took us to see his family and home, where his wife made us some of the best food of the trip for lunch.
We had a couple of nights in Kandy visiting the tooth relic temple and seeing a cultural dance show before going into the mountains then heading down to safari in Udawalawe where we got up very close with many elephants! We spent a night in Ella which we really loved and finished with 3 days on the beach in Hikkaduwa which is a lively area where we did some whale watching nearby in Mirissa.
Our dealings with the tour company have been easy and smooth and thank them and Lasantha for a wonderful trip. With the train strikes that were going on and the crazy driving on the road I’m not sure we could have done the trip without them. Thanks very much!
