unspoilt beach

Hi I am travelling to Sri lanka In December. After a time of travelling around I would like a few days on a totally unspoiled beach just swimming and relaxing.

I was thinking of the beaches around Tangalle/ Dickwella or Mirissa.

Can any one suggest the best for what I am looking for?

Many thanks

Hi there,

Yes these three qualify. However hardly any certainty that you can swim, most of December the sea tends to be quite rough. However at least Mirissa and Tangalle have small areas with a coral reef offering some protection, so on these stretches probably you can swim - at the rest you can only bath. Also note that again most of December you have 2nd intermonsoon, which means that on 1/3 of the days it is all grey skies hence not much relaxing...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
