Book this day excursion from Negombo


The weather in Sri Lanka is based on the two rainy seasons; Yala (Little rain) season and Maha (Big rain) season. Over the years, these seasons are known to have arrived early or run late but the good thing is these seasons have sunny and bright hours, days and weeks in-between.

From December until April, Monsoon winds do not blow. And in July & August.

The South-Western Monsson (Yala) will blow from May to June and will tail off in July-August. Colombo and the South seas (Mirissa, Galle…) will be rough during this time. This is the time to visit the Eastern beaches of Sri Lanka (Nilaveli, Trincomalee). The cultural areas and the Central highlands are still great to visit!

The North-Eastern Monsoon (Maha) will blow from September to November and will tail off in December. This season brings a lot of rain to all parts of the island but luckily The sunny and bright hours, days and weeks in-between is common to this season too. Land slides, train breaks and floods are quite common during September, October and November and quite likely in the first half of December if the tail end of the Monsoon blows stronger!

Maha is the season of best deals, so it’s still great to consider for that kind of a holiday!
