Sri Lanka holidays
Sigiriya ,Sri Lanka: King Kasyapa (477 – 495 AD) built his palace on the top of this rock and decorated its sides with colourful frescoes. On a small plateau about halfway up the side of this rock he built a gateway in the form of an enormous lion. It is one of the best preserved examples of ancient urban planning. A UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Cape Weligama’s earthy-hued residences, nestled into the undulations of this dramatic headland, create the illusion of a traditional Sri Lankan village, yet beneath the terracotta-tiled rooftops lie stylish, contemporary interiors, generously sized between 130 and 300 m2.
Offering first-rate PADI dive courses and exciting dives, other activities include private cruises, big game fishing, seasonal whale and dolphin-watching trips and banana boating. #whalewatching #diving #capeweligama #beach #sea #southerncoast #srilanka #activitiessrilanka #whalewatchingsrilanka
A rust red palm-spiked headland rising dramatically above the Weligama coastline, surrounded by a warm pristine ocean home to turtles, dolphins and whales,is the enviable natural setting of Sri Lanka’s newest resort. #capeweligama #dilmah #resplendentceylon #ceylon #southerncoast #southsrilanka
