Beaches are not just for sunbathing on, as any surfer will tell you.
Especially in Sri Lanka, one of the most reliable surf destinations in the Indian Ocean. Since the early 60’s Sri Lanka attracts surfers from all over the world.
The best surf points in Sri Lanka are located on the South and East Coast with Hikkaduwa and Arugam Bay being the busiest, but there are many “secret spots” like Unawatuna, Ahangama, Weligama, Mirissa or Yala where you still can find uncrowded surf.
Tourism Guide For Historical Places in Galle
Galle Fort, in the Bay of Galle on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka, was built first in 1588 by the Portuguese, then extensively fortified by the Dutch during the 17th century from 1649 onwards. It is a historical, archaeological and architectural heritage monument, which even after more than 423 years maintains a polished appearance, due to extensive reconstruction work done by Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka.
Yet another place to be toured regarding Sri Lankan tourism sites is Rumassala. In colonial era it was known as ‘Buona Vista’ (pleasant view). The legendary chronicle ‘Ramayana’ proclaims that ‘Rumassala’ is a chunk of Himalayan Mountains in India. Rumassala hill gives you a beautiful view of the southern coast of galle.
Unawatuna is a major tourist attraction in Sri Lanka and famous for its beautiful beach and corals.
Jungle Beach is a secluded beach in Unawatuna that's growing less secluded all the time. It's still a nice and relatively peaceful Una beach off the main strip.
