BEST TIME TO VISIT SRI LANKA

Weather in Sri Lanka is as diverse as the scenery and one side of the island always enjoys beautiful weather throughout the year making it a fabulous year round destination. The best time to visit the south-west coast (Galle) is between November and April and the best time to visit the east coast is between May and October. The Cultural Triangle enjoys a year-round climate with high humidity and a little rain year-round but it is often short and sharp showers. The best time to spot whale pods is between May and October on the east coast or November and December on the south coast.
