Sri Lanka Holiday Weather
The tropical paradise of Sri Lanka is an all year round holiday destination. The average temperatures are between 27-33 degree Celsius in most low-lying areas and coastal areas. In the hill country the temperatures can be cooler than the low-lying areas.
Sri Lanka’s weather is characterised by the two monsoons (South Western and North Eastern). However, the monsoons approach the country from opposite directions to each other. When there is wet season in the South West it is perfect and sunny on the North and East. This makes it always a perfect time to visit this beautiful green island.
The weather pattern doesn’t stick to exact calendar months. It is therefore not uncommon to experience long spells of sunny days during the monsoon period. Likewise, there will be some rain during the dry period.
When to go to Sri Lanka
