The island in the Indian Ocean is a magical place where luxury and nature are combined to a wonderful mix
Sri Lanka’s biggest treasure lies just before the doorstep: the Indian Ocean. In the morning, it resembles a well-polished silver mirror; at midday, the sun lets thousands of diamonds sparkle; at night, the sea gives the impression of being a dark-blue blanket made of precious velvet. Sri Lanka has a total of 1340 km of beaches. Especially in the south, one paradise is located next to each other. Rekawa Beach is one of them: gold-coloured fine sand, palm trees that move with the light breeze and only a few tourists—here you can find the ultimate relaxation from the stress of everyday life. You cannot only enjoy sun, sand and waves in the Weligama Bay, but also a peculiarity of Sri Lanka: the stilt fishing. Almost motionless the fishermen sit on long wooden poles at the beach and wait until flood brings their catch to them. Stilt fishing belongs to the traditional image of Sri Lanka as do elephants, which are venerated on the island state for their wisdom and strength. The closest you can get to them is in the Yala National Park in the southeast of the country.
