Discover the best of the North of Sri Lanka and its unspoilt nature with a 3 nights Sailing Holiday.
Sail to Jaffna, Delft Island, Palk Bay and Nainathivu Island. Private cruise available for up to 8 pax.
The North of Sri Lanka and its islands are a world away from the rest of the country, as it stills slowly emerges after its recent isolation. The North is, in many respects, Sri Lanka’s last frontier. The city of Jaffna has a unique identity shaped by Portuguese, Dutch, British, Sinhalese and Muslim influences on its predominantly Tamil cultural history.
The once vibrant town offers a glimpse into revival with its colourful temples set next to huge churches and streets of old colonial charm. Experience food and flavours that are unique to this region. In the Palk Bay, west of Jaffna, a string of largely uninhabited islands offers the visitor the experience of traditional lifestyle of these people. The trip to the
North and cruising the islands is enhanced by the pleasure of simply reaching such a remote and little‐visited part of Sri Lanka.
This 4 day-3 nights Sailing Cruise will take you through the beautiful beaches and islands of the North: Palk Bay offers an excellent mix of culture, history, wildlife and
nature. You will discover Nainathivu Island, observe the miniature horses of Delft, and swim around Kakaraithivu – at each stop encountering something you have never seen before. This Cruise is available from November to April every year.
