Galle

Galle is a living time capsule. It has a vibrant commercial district that’s also shambolic and often charmless, but passes through one of the Fort gates and you are transported back to the Dutch colonial era. Built by the Dutch beginning in 1663, the 36-hectare Fort occupies most of the promontory that forms the older part of Galle. Described by the notoriously hard-to-please Paul Theroux as being ‘garlanded with red hibiscus and smelling of the palm-scented ocean, The Fort is an amazing collection of structures and culture dating back through the centuries. Just wandering the streets at random yields one architectural surprise after another. And be sure to take in the dramatic views of town and ocean from the encircling walls. UNESCO has recognized Fort as a World Heritage Site

Unawatuna

One the most picturesque beaches that has made it to the list of ‘top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world’ as voted by the Discovery Channel and Mark Ellingham, the founder of 'Rough Guides'.
