Activities and points of interest in Galle

Make sure to visit this town’s most popular tourist attractions especially if it’s your first time. Step out of your villa in Galle and head straight to Galle Fort. Get ready to be stunned with this UNESCO World Heritage Site, which holds such a rich history extending to as early as ancient times. One of our favourite attractions in Galle Fort is the white lighthouse. And as night time approaches, we like picking a spot in the area to witness the awe-inspiring sunset. One of the best we’ve ever seen in our lives!
Just a short drive away from Galle, you will find beautiful beaches of Unawatuna and Koggala for some fun time by the sand and the sea.

Galle’s restaurants, cafes & bars

Most of our favourite restaurants and shops in town are located within the fort, which is just a few minutes away from your villa in Galle. For affordable (but incredibly delicious) Sri Lankan food, The Blockhouse and Lucky Fort Restaurant are highly recommended. Do check out Barefoot for chic homewares and Stick No Bills for artsy postcards too.
