Most people come to Sri Lanka for the soutwestern beaches. As nice as they are, I still give the nod to the beaches in the east. The problem with this area is that is has been the iste of a civil war for over 20 years and there is very little tourist infrastructure in place. While the hotels on the southwestern coast are already up and running, the few that were out here in the east suffered a lot mroe damage. It is not know when or if they will reopen anytime soon. The setting is grand though.
