Sri Lanka is a genuine paradise for divers, be they professional or amateur. Beneath the turquoise waters numerous wonders attract the eye. Multi-coloured corals and tropical fish hide in the caves under strangely shaped rocks. A coral carpet surrounds the island. Actually, 138 coral species live in Sri Lanka, of all different shapes and colours. Several fish swim in its waters. You will find the Atlantic puffin, lion unicorn, puffer, clown fish, emperor angel, blue surgeon, rock fish, tuna, barracuda, lobster, octopus, eel, grouper, skate...With some patience, you can see whales, as pods of them sometimes swim off the east coast, especially around Trincomalee. Sri Lanka's sea bed is an absolute splendour to the eyes, so take a good look!
