When to travel

I want to take my family on a tour to hill country and surrounding area followed by a week at Bentota. I know December to March/April is ideal but difficult because of uni. and exams for my children. Is August ok or too dodgy for swimming at bentota and travelling around?

HI there...

Weather wise in Bentota August is ok, plenty of hot sunny stuff, with small chance of light showers in later afternoon/evening times..

However, sea swimming then will not be any good due to rough seas and dangerous currents..

Thought so. Thanks for your quick response. I guess I'll have to work through my son's Uni. and daughters exams. I have been wanting to go back for so many years since I was born in Colombo and came to England in '72. My family has history in sri lanka since my father was in tea trade we went to all beaches, hill country etc. Bentota was my favourite. Anyway thanks for your response.
