Lanka has so much land-based wildlife to hold your at­ten­tion, you may for­get to ex­plore the rich­ness of its ma­rine en­vi­ron­ments. The is­land’s wa­ters are home to blue whales (the largest an­i­mals ever to live on our planet), dol­phins, five of the world’s seven species of sea tur­tle, and in­nu­mer­able coral reefs. The south coast from Ben­tota to Ham­ban­tota is best-known for ma­rine tourism, while his­toric Trin­co­ma­lee on the east coast is the gate­way to the highly re­garded Pi­geon Is­land Ma­rine Sanc­tu­ary.
