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.
Sri Lanka, the pearl of the Indian Ocean, is blessed with beautiful beaches all around the island. Between December and April, it is also blessed with spectacular weather on the South Coast due to the peculiarities of monsoon climate.
The secret is well and truly out, and now if you rock up expecting to be sitting by yourself on a stretch of golden sand with nothing but monkeys and coconuts for company, you might be in for a rude surprise.
