Our Story

The Pearl aspires to be the finest on-going essay on Sri Lanka, in both literary and photographic essence. We seek a wide readership of potential tourists and discerning Sri Lankans who have a keen interest in exploring our country from a socio-cultural or natural historical point of view.

The Pearl aims to inspire travellers to visit our wondrous land through exceptional photographs and their background stories that celebrate the many diverse facets of our small island nation. Among the subject areas explored are Culture & People, Nature & Wildlife, Arts & Entertainment, Adventure & Recreation, Food & Lifestyle and Places & Landscapes. The Pearl bestows special attention on photo journalism, and advocates travel ethics.
