The Sri Lanka Southern Coast 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.
Gintota: Natural Silk Factory: all kind of of cloths in silk.
Galle: fort: his ramparts, the Amangala Hotel, the Galle Fort Hotel, the Dutch Church, the Dutch House museum. on 10 km: tea plantation.
Unawatuna: a beautiful beach with local restaurants.
Matara: a huge statue of lord Buddha and temple with 500 scenes of the teaching of lord Buddha.
Natural parcs: Sinharaja Forest Reserve: a tropical rainforest.
Yale West National Park: a natural animal reserve: best to visit early in the morning.
All excursions are 1 day trips and can be organized.

Hello , thanks for your review . Nice to read that you enjoyed the place and our full service .
As for the traffic noise : the governement started to build a new by-pass road from Hikkuduwa to Galle , so that in futur the coastal road will only be in use for local traffic .

It was a pleasure having you all at our beach villa .
Indeed there was a misunderstanding concerning the exclusive use of the beach villa : there is an extra charge for exclusive use if the group is less than 14 . Nevertheless I'm happy that we could sort this out .
