The Sri Lanka Southern Coast region

The Southern Coastal area of Sri Lanka is famous for it's palm fringed, golden sandy beaches. It is also well linked to the capital with the introduction of a new highway liking Colombo, the airport and further down the coast. Inland there are Tea Plantations to visit and areas of outstanding natural beauty such as virgin rainforest. Just 3 hours from here are Yala and Ude Walawe National Parks are ideal for safaris to take in herds of elephants and if you are lucky the elusive leopard and many more animals.


Galle itself is dominated by the wonderfully preserved World Heritage Fort built first in 1588 by the Portuguese, then extensively fortified by the Dutch during the 17th century. The fort has a colourful history reflected in the many styles that add to it's wonder. In the coastal area surrounding Galle whether North or South there are an abundance of beautiful palm fringed Indian Ocean Beaches for the perfect beach holiday.
