This thread is marked as being about Sri Lanka

Hi I am going to sri lanka would really like where to start and where to go making the most of my stay but with no rushing about and some beach time

I think most people do a loop from Colombo to Kandy (temple of the tooth is the big attraction), taking in Dambulla, Polonarua, Sigiriya rock fortress, Nuara Eliya for the tea plantations, often down to Yala NP for safari then to Galle. That makes a good loop with beach time at the end (Unawatuna beach is nice).

Visitors to SL seem to split into two : those who don't venture beyond the beach, and those who visit the interior. It's a bit of a culture shock to leave the interior and hit the beach with hotels and western food.

I've not done it independently so can't advise much more than this. We had a driver and minivan for four of us, so it was organised for us.
