The rainfall across the island are determined by two monsoons which affect different parts of the island. The north-east monsoon runs from around October to February and predominantly affects the north, north-west and east coasts and the highlands. The south-west which spans from late April through to September brings downpours to the west coast and the hill country. Inter-monsoonal rains may occasionally be experienced during the dry season which cannot be predicted.

With two monsoons affecting different parts of the island at different times, Sri Lanka can be considered as a year-round holiday destination with a number of seasonal attractions.
