For many people, visiting Thailand is a rite of passage. Slightly exotic, mostly comfortable, great weather, food and friendly people – the perfect spot to dip your toe in the water with your first independent backpacking trip. For one reason or another we’d never made the trip… until now. Tucked away down south we found some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
When you think about Sri Lankan beaches you probably imagine picture-postcard shorelines of white sand, sapphire waters and low-hanging palm trees, and quite right too, because they are some of the finest beaches in the world. But what might come as a surprise is the effort that is going on behind the scenes to keep these beaches looking so bloody good.
