Even if military checkpoints still remind us of the 25 years of civil war, Sri Lanka, the island-garden off the Indian Ocean coast, may finally get to show tourists its fabulous treasures. To be provide easier access to Nilaveli Beach, a resort located on the east coast, 275 km from the capital Colombo, a new airport in Matara will shortly be inaugurated. This town was decimated by the tsunami in 2004 but it’s now full of guesthouses and boutique hotels.
An example? Sun House: with its colonial style, it seems as if it has been built for the Queen of England… We’re sold!!!
