Have you got travel insurance for Sri Lanka? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents happen all the time and having travel insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. You can read more about why you need travel insurance.

I have been using World Nomads Travel Insurance on every trip and in my opinion, they are the best travel insurance provider on the market. I always choose the Explorer Plan as it covers just about everything.

ARRIVING AT THE PALM TREE ROPE SWING ON DALAWELLA BEACH

Dalawella Beach is located on the south-west coastline of Sri Lanka, 130kms from Colombo.

The Palm Tree Rope Swing is located in front of Dream Cabana Homestay on Dalawella Beach, only 2kms drive from Unawatuna Beach if that is where you are staying.

The local family who owns this homestay on Dalawella Beach are very inviting and friendly so don’t be a stranger and take the time to get to know them.

They allow you to use the swing for a small fee of 500 rupees, this helps them to maintain the upkeep of the rope swing. They also sell food and drinks and can give you some local knowledge of other things to do in Dalawella Beach.

BEST TIME TO VISIT THE PALM TREE SWING ON DALAWELLA BEACH

I visited the palm tree rope swing on Dalawella Beach at 5 pm in the afternoon which is the best time to enjoy the sunset and get the best ‘instafamous’ shots!

Be sure not to leave immediately after the sun disappears over the horizon, wait another 15 minutes and watch the colours of the sky become even more intensified!

Apart from the rope swing on Dalawella Beach, you can spot large turtles wading very close to shore and if you dare to look down when you’re mid-air on the swing, you can spot the turtles from above!

You can also take a short walk down Dalawella Beach and witness the locals ‘stilt fishing’ over the reef. This is an old traditional fishing method in Sri Lanka that requires much skill and balance.

It allows the fisherman to sit a couple of meters above the water causing minimal shadows and little disturbance to the sea life, in the hope they can catch their dinner. Human ingenuity at it’s finest!
