About this location

Southern Province region

Sri Lanka is characterised by its breathtakingly beautiful nature with tropical forests, mountains, waterfalls, nature reserves, large inland lakes, unspoilt beaches, palms, tea plantations, elephants, the inconceivable blue colour and the turbulent surf of the Indian Ocean and an extremely friendly population.

The southern coast belt is a lovely place to stay. From November till April the ocean becomes calm, the sky blue and in evening time wonderful sunsets. May, June and July are the hottest months of the year with mostly in the evening tropical rains what is then very refreshing.

Galle is the capital of the southern province and has a colourful history. The magnificent Dutch fort was declared World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. The 300 year old Dutch atmosphere is still very much alive in the fort.


Places of interest:

Moratuwa: lake to visit by motorboat.

Ahungala: turtle farm.

Hikkaduwa: glass-bottom boats, diving centres, wave surfing, local restaurants, disco on the beach, local shops.

Dodanduwa: lake with a temple on a small island to visit by canoe.

Mittiyagoda: moonstone mine.
