What To Expect

Sri Lanka's city of Galle has a multitude of sights to see for tourists in the mood for sun, sea, and adventure. Expect to view many stone sea walls, expanded by the Dutch, and car-free streets with architecture reflecting Portuguese, Dutch, and British rule. Your tour begins with a convenient hotel pick up by your English-speaking guide, with your first stop being the stunning Kalutara Bodhiya Buddhist Temple before heading over to Kosgoda's turtle hatchery, where you get to see baby turtles going out into the sea. Drop by the 300-year-old Dutch Fortress standing tall in the middle of the city and get to have a peek into the place's history, before letting loose and having fun at the beautiful shores of Mirissa (famous for its crescent-shaped beach) and Polhena. Once you're done with lunch and swimming in the ocean, learn more about history at a fort in Matara around more Dutch-designed buildings. Pigeon Island is your next stop, which is connected with the land side by a attractive hanging bridge for breathtaking views all year round. Before you end the day, you'll be passing by the Shrine of Our Lady of Matara as well as the Dondra Head Lighthouse, the tallest in Sri Lanka. Finally, travel hassle-free going back to your hotel in peace.
