Wonder of Asia
Sail Lanka was born of a desire to create and promote sailing as a new and ecologically sustainable tourist activity in Sri Lanka. Sailing forges a lasting bond between visitors and the local community as it enables discovery of Sri Lanka’s primary resource – the ocean.

Our Vision is based on yachts built, owned, and operated in Sri Lanka by Sri Lankans as a positive complement to the Sri Lankan tourism industry. Our objective is to maximize the socio-economic returns and benefits to the nation and its people.

Where we sail
November to April
Stretching out along a great arc of sun‑baked coastline from Galle in the West to Tissamaharama in the East, are some of the best Southern beaches including Jungle Beach, Unawatuna, Weligama, Mirissa and Tallala to name a few. Many of our guests choose to extend their sailing holiday with visits to the country’s finest national parks famous for elephants and leopards, to the tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya, or simply with a few more days of sunshine at any one of the chic, beach resorts.
April to October
The East coast offers vast tracks of yet unexplored beaches, a laid-back setting for travelers looking to step off the beaten path. The vibrant town of Trincomalee, with its appealing blend of colonial charm, colourful Hindu temples and beautiful coastal scenery is a place to visit. Sun lovers and snorkelers can enjoy the seaside villages of Uppuveli and Nilaveli, just down the coast lies the bay resort of Passikudah. Further south lies the surfing hotspot of Arugam Bay, also a convenient starting point to visit the national parks of Kumana and Yala.
November to April
The north is a world away from the rest of the island and is in many respects Sri Lanka’s last frontier. Jaffna has a unique identity shaped by Portuguese, Dutch, British, Sinhalese and Muslim influences on its Tamil cultural history. The town offers colourful temples set next to huge churches and streets of old colonial charm. West of Jaffna, a string of largely uninhabited islands dissolve into the blue waters of the Jaffna lagoon and Palk Strait. Half the pleasure is simply reaching such a remote and little‑visited corner of Sri Lanka.
