Each route can be tailor made to 7, 12 or 16 days or adjusted to your travel dates.
Due to the monsoon seasons, the Northern and Eastern routes are best done within the periods mentions, but we can tailor the Southern route to suite your travel dates.
Yes but in some places there is not much choice as the experiences depend on where you stay
If you want to cover all locations in a route you will need to travel a fair distance between each place, but once you get there, it all slows down to a leisurely pace.
Each route includes a beach stay. But if you want more, we can advice which beach to stay at. From November to April when the monsoons hit the east, the best beaches are in the West, South West and Deep South of the island. You can stay along this coast even in the Summer months of July and August but seas are slightly rough. From May to October, you find some of the world’s best beaches in the stunning East Coast where you can wade out for hundreds of feet into the clear blue shallow seas.
