One of the joys of visiting Eastern Sri Lanka is that it offers so many pleasures. White coral beaches and shrines to deities, surfing and wild elephants, long ago shipwrecks and endless lagoons to wade in. Your visit may not be long, but rest assured, it will be fulfilling.
The Eastern Sri Lanka Geotourism Forum has worked with National Geographic to create this Geotourism MapGuide Website. National Geographic defines geotourism as “Tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place – its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage and the well-being of its residents.”
Residents, visitors, community organizations, tourism stakeholders and local businesses are invited to nominate places of interest and events for potential inclusion in the website. Sign Up and complete an online nomination form and help identify destinations and experiences most distinctive to the people, places and things that capture the region’s unique character and beauty.
