A family holiday to Sri Lanka can be a magical experience in such a diverse and beautiful country.
With so much to stimulate young minds and so many adventures to be had, we think Sri Lanka is a great option for a family holiday.
Sri Lanka's wildlife is a big attraction for families. Yala National Park offers a safe and thrilling jungle adventure for children (and grown ups), with the highest concentration of leopards in the world.
Whale watching trips from the south coast are a highlight for kids and adults alike and the excitement of seeing a huge elephant walking down the middle of the road or the clatter and chatter of a troop of monkeys in the trees are the kind of experiences to delight children.
Clambering along the walls of Galle Fort, riding the scenic train through the Hill Country, watching a turtle lay its eggs, grappling with "String Hoppers" for breakfast, cycling through ancient ruins, Sri Lanka will not disappoint with new experiences, nor with some excellent boutique family hotels.
