With two distinct monsoon seasons affecting different sides of the island at different times of year, Sri Lanka’s weather patterns are complex – though surprisingly predictable – and if you time your visit well you can be confident of experiencing sunny skies and mostly dry days.

December to March is considered the optimum period for travelling to Sri Lanka, being the driest season on the west and south coasts, in the Cultural Triangle and the Hill Country. The east coast is best visited from May to September, when many of the beaches on the opposite side of the island are experiencing the monsoon. Temperatures are high throughout the year, staying close to an average of 27 degrees Celsius, and often rising to above 30.
