Towering the southwest bay of Galle is the Galle Fort, a mere climb away up the stone stairs and onto the edges of the fort’s premises. The wind about to gush towards you does not get any stronger. Watch as the mighty waves collide with the rock barriers beside the land, collapsing with oddly satisfying wave splashes. It is music to the ears and the endless horizon is a feast to the eyes to lose focus on.
Galle Light House
Despite being centuries old, the bright white walls of the Galle Light House remain as radiant and pure as they were during its good old times, a good score of centuries back. Once known as the Pointe de Galle Light, this lighthouse is a well-renowned tourist destination on the southern coast, standing tall against the strong gusting winds and the test of time, well preserved as it should be.
As much of a prevalent beach destination as it is, the Unawatuna Beach is known for its jade waters, happening beach bars and exhilarating water sports. Snorkel through the mildly warm, shallow waters of the clear beach to experience the wonders that lie upon its coastal beds or scuba-dive into the calmer depths. At the end of the seaside adventures, you could tone down elegantly at the pristine beachside resorts and spas.
Secretly hidden away from the reach of most individuals is a treasured and secluded cove close to Unawatuna. This cove is surrounded by a dense plantation of trees on all sides, making it all the trickier to access. However, with the help of the locals, experience an unforgettable adventure through the forest and enjoy the exhilarating views that lie beyond at the Jungle Beach, which would be a shame to miss out on.
