Galle & the South Coast

South coast Galle is a fascinating destination. You can soak up the rich history of Galle’s superbly preserved 17 th century fortress, watch an international match at Galle’s iconic test cricket ground or shop Galle Fort’s boutiques before spending the rest of your days on a charming beach framed by coconut palms, dipping in and out of the warm Indian Ocean. Galle’s beaches have distinct flavours, from lively bar-lined Unawatuna and whale-watching hotspot Mirissa, to quieter Dalawella, Talalla and Hiriketiya bays where yoga offers an alternative to beach dozing. The significant swell off Sri Lanka’s south coast is hallowed surfing turf, and bays such as Weligama and Kabalana are well suited to those yearning to learn.

But there’s more to Galle than its age-defying fort and bountiful beaches. The timeless beauty of the region’s rural palm- and paddy-dominated interior begs to be explored. Guided bicycle trails take you deep inland, through rural villages and nature reserves, to ancient temples, and along the banks of serene lotus-flecked lakes. Galle is also a gateway to southern rainforests as well as low country tea plantations, spice gardens and cinnamon estates.
