Sri Lanka’s fourth-biggest town with its Unesco protected Fort is a place of colour, texture and sensation totally unlike anywhere else in Sri Lanka. With Dutch-colonial buildings, little boutique shops, cafes and hotels, you will feel like walking through a medieval European town placed on a tropical shore.
Just 3km from Galle, you can explore the beautiful beach of Unawatuna with its fine golden sand and moonstone blue water. Unawatuna is a popular resort with many beach restaurants, guest houses and souvenir shops. On the way from Weligama, we recommend visiting a small turtle farm and taking pictures of famous Weligama stilt fishermen.
