When to visit

Sri Lanka is an all-year destination with each season offering its own advantages. Temperatures are warm all year long in coastal areas while the central hills have a cooler climate. Tropical monsoons bring rainfall from May to September in the southwest and October to January in the northeast. December to mid-April is generally considered peak season but will be more crowded and expensive. Whale watching and safari are possible all year round in different locations.
