• Galle is the capital of the south and one of Sri Lanka’s most cosmopolitan places. With a spectacular setting on the south western tip of the island, Galle is surrounded by palm-fringed beaches and forest-covered hills towards the interior.
  • The city has a quaint and varied history, with a plethora of influences and cultures crossing over the centuries, leaving a vibrant and diverse way of life. Famous for its 17th century Dutch Fort, the old part of the city is home to some of the best craft shops, restaurants and bars in the island. Some of the best accommodation can also be found in the walls of the fort and the surrounding area.
  • A little further down the coast is the cool traveler out of Unawatuna. Regarded as one of the best beaches on the 70’s hippie trail, Unawatuna retains a laid back vibe that has survived a battering in the tsunami.
  • Galle is also the home of the Galle Literary Festival, which takes place at the end of January each year. The festival is known internationally as one of the most popular and friendly on the circuit and is an added reason to visit the city.
