A Few Things To Do: Honeymooning in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a wonderfully vibrant country. An island in fact located in the Indian Ocean off the South East coast of India. The climate is tropical year round making Sri Lanka honeymoons popular with newlyweds year round. The culture is historic and steeped in tradition and the people harbour a warm sense of hospitality. If you or someone you know is looking for a great honeymooning destination then this post might be relevant. Whether you would like to spend your time relaxing or exploring there is something for all kinds of newlyweds. 

You could try visiting the Yala National Park and the Dambulla Rock Temple, or if relaxing on the beautiful sandy beaches of Negombo is more your style then you can do what you wish in this paradise island. Perhaps you'd prefer to get lost in the endless tea plantations and discover ancient cave complexes and temples. There is so much to see, do and experience in Sri Lanka, so here are a few reasons it could be the perfect honeymoon destination for you.

As afore mentioned the Yala National Park is just one way to experience a beautiful country which incorporates a striking mix of mountains and rainforests and tea plantations which seem to go on forever. You can see wild elephants, leopards, sloths, and a whole range of exotic and wonderful creatures. You can even swim with whales and see dolphins. If you are an animal lover or a lover of nature then there is so much to revel in, in Sri Lanka. The cultural triangle can be reached from Colombo (where the main airport is situated) in around four to six hours with a private driver. The opportunity for truly romantic photographs is infinite on this jewel of an island.

Sri Lanka is home to the ancient and beautiful cities of Pollonaruwa and Anuradhapura and there are many stunning forts and spectacular temples which make for a tremendously romantic setting for honeymooners. A place worthy of further mention is Dambulla. Here you can climb a gentle granite outcrop at which point you will discover a series of vast sprawling caves; these are decorated with enormous Buddhas, vividly striking murals and elegantly crafted domed shrines known locally as 'stupas'. As mentioned another cultural feature of Sri Lanka are the historic forts such as the Sigiriya Rock Fortress, this one is particularly striking as it is built upon a rocky outcrop which rises 200m above the surrounding plains.

In order to get to it, it is quite a steep climb past intricate frescoes and ornate carvings in order to reach the 5th century palace ruins at the zenith. This is one of many UNESCO World Heritage Sites found in Sri Lanka, and it is one of the oldest remaining examples of ancient urban planning. Carved into the rock and flanking either side of the gateway which gives access to the climb to the top of Sigiriya Fort are two huge Lions Paws, this is where the rock takes its name in fact, as it translates as Lion Rock.

After all of the stresses of pre-wedding planning and the months and weeks of to'ing and fro'ing, relaxing honeymoons are still at the top of the list and there is ample opportunity to kickback and unwind in such a romantically picturesque location as Sri Lanka.

Personally I think the beaches are as lovely as anywhere in the world, and a perfect place to relax and enjoy a romantic time with your loved one, another benefit to the coastline of Sri Lanka is that there are many quieter beaches so you could potentially have a beach all to yourselves. Sri Lanka is a wonderful country and an ideal honeymoon destination.
