Home Adventure & Activities Diving and Snorkelling
Sri Lanka has an overwhelming 1340 kilometres long coastline and is known for its beautiful beaches, with the warm Indian Ocean waters lovely for bathing and water sports. The pristine, clear waters with amazing coral reefs make for great snorkelling and diving, while gentle bays are ideal for first time surfers.

Beach lovers have so many beaches to choose from: from long golden beaches to small hidden ones, from wide open beaches to secluded ones, from laid-back beaches to lively ones. Regardless of what your choice would be, the beaches in Sri Lanka are amazingly beautiful.
Being a tropical country with different monsoon seasons, different beaches are best at different times. For sunny weather, calm seas and the optimal diving and snorkelling conditions, the best time to visit the southern or western beaches of Sri Lanka is from November to April, with places like Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna, and the eastern beaches from May to September, around Trincomalee and Passikudah.

Also snorkeling can be done at Pigeon Island Marine National Park and at some of the other small islands off the coast of Trincomalee and Nilaveli. Snorkelling is one of the famous activities in this area, usually from May to September. Stingrays, sharks, corals and many more tropical underwater life can be seen in the clear sea of Trincomalee, as well as sea turtles. Explore the wonders of underwater life through your maybe first scuba diving experience on this discovery dive in Trincomalee. Relax as your PADI certified scuba instructors guide you and provide a full safety and equipment briefing, along with practical demonstrations when in the water.
