Activities, Tours & Daytrips

Sri Lanka, the pearl of the Indian Ocean, is well known as one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Not without good reasons, the tropical island has its visitors a lot to offer!

A thousand of years old culture with very well recieved UNESCO world heritages, the famous Ceylon tea plantages in the highlands, several National Parks with species rich wildlife, endless palm beaches with romantic sun downers, numerous Buddha states that defend the land from evil and friendly people who tend to be curious toward others.

Please note the dress code while visiting ancient tempel areas, bring good footwear for sightseeing tours, drink enough water (not only the holy water!) and protect yourself from the sun during all your holidays!

The whole DE SILVA Windresort Team wishes you a wonderful round tour with fantastic impressions!
