The east coast of Sri Lanka is very different from the rest of the island with predominately Tamil speaking people, and a different weather pattern meaning it is perfect in our summer months.
The capital is Trincomalee which blends a dash of colonial history and the colour of Hindu temples and stunning coastal scenery. Down the coast, you will find sleepy coastal palm-fringed beaches.
The east coast is at its warmest and driest during the European summer months when the west coast and south coast are receiving more seasonal rain.
From May to August the Yala monsoon brings rain to the island’s southwestern half. The southwest has the highest rainfall – up to 4000mm a year. There is also an inter-monsoonal period in October and November when rain can occur in many parts of the island. Colombo and the low-lying coastal regions have an average temperature of 27°C. The sea stays at around 27°C all year. Climatically speaking, the driest (and best) seasons in Sri Lanka are from December to March for the west and south coasts.
