Admire the sunset on the beachside
Known best for their golden sand and breathtaking ocean views, the beaches in Sri Lanka are also ideal places to bask in the glow of a sunset. Locations around the commercial capital Colombo have rock formations and far-off ships approaching the harbour that make these dazzling sunsets even more dramatic. The proximity to the Colombo makes it convenient to spend the day splashing around in the sea and then lie on the sand to witness the sun setting over the horizon and the first glimpse of stars. Apart from Colombo, sunsets in Hikkaduwa can be truly remarkable given that giant turtles visit the shore at dusk.
