Best beach in June?

Hello all,

A friend and I are considering 7-10 days in Sri Lanka in early June. Can you please recommend a good beach destination for us that will allow us to swim, scuba/snorkel, tan and also have good options for restaurants/bars?

Also, any other recommendations are welcome as I know we'll want to explore!

Thank you.

Hi there,

The combination is almost impossible. See


all southwestern beaches are out, for snorkel anyhow 9 months/year and in June mostly also for tan as it's 1st intermonsoon. Nilaveli and to a lesser extent Passikudah on east coast (7 hours overland from airport) have all beach qualities but Nilaveli has _a few_ outside restaurants and no bars; Passi even to a lesser extent. So for both beach areas (and the other 3 of Trinco) booking halfboard is best, sorry...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
