If you haven't realized it yet, we at MdM HQ are a little obsessed with Sri Lanka!
And for good reason. This beautiful and diverse country has much to offer travellers, from beaches to ancient sites and more.
Here's our handy instagram guide to this magical country.
Head to Cinnamon Harbarana Lodge to use as a base for your inland wanderings
Once you're ready to tear yourself away from the pool go to the Gathering, where the elephants have been visiting every sundown for hundreds of years in the Minnerva National Park
Spend some time wandering the streets of Galle, discovering treasures in the many boutiques and resting at the unique cafes.
Watch in awe at the stilt fisherman (you might need to wake up early for this one!).
Don't forget to try the hoppers, a local speciality that will become a firm favourite. Wafer thin coconut flour bowl are topped with a fried egg and toppings off your choice.
Once you've filled your tummy it's time to head to one of our favourite beach bars...Zephyr's in Mirissa Beach
Grab one of their amazing cocktails and sit back and wait for one of the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see!
Happy travels x
