Bentota beach

After a sumptuous breakfast you will have time to explore the town of Bentota and discover its amenities. The first foreigners to stumble upon this charming spot were the Arab merchant sailors who were frequent visitors to Sri Lanka over the centuries. The town has changed much since then and is now one of the best developed and most beautiful beach resorts in the country with star-class hotels, exclusive boutiques and myriads of restaurants, large and small, serving the freshest of sea foods at affordable prices.

Day 03-Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery

We continue our journey to Kosgoda Beach, the home of the turtles and famous for its turtle hatchery operated by the Wild Life Protection Society of Sri Lanka. The hatchery was established in 1981 to save Sri Lanka’s turtles from extinction. The hatchery pays fishermen for turtle eggs that they collect at night along the sandy beach. Visitors can see huge tanks filled with new born turtle hatchlings feeding and swimming while they await their return to their native element – the sea. When they are between 2 and 4 days old the baby turtles are taken to the seashore and released, usually during the safer hours of darkness.

Ahungalla / Ambalangoda

The afternoon will be spent at Ahungalla, a single long dream of a beach about 15 km south of Bentota whose pristine beauty has been carefully preserved. Ahungalla beach invites travellers to enjoy long walks along its fine sands and to enjoy the sea breezes singing softly through the palms that fringe the coast. Those interested in traditional medicine might wish to visit the Lotus Villa, one of the best Ayurveda resorts on this coast. Basket ware and handicrafts abound and can be bought from local street vendors. The area around Ahungalla, particuarly the town of Ambalangoda, is famous for traditional hand carved masks made from light wood and painted with vegetable paints. Some of the more elaborate masks feature the fearsome faces with fanglike teeth and protruding tongues of devils and deities who paly an important role in local folklore. The day’s exploration end in the historic port city of Galle where the tour will stop over night.

Day 04-Galle

Galle and the beautiful beach resort of Unawatana six kilometers away will be the focus of the fourth day of the tour. Another of Sri Lanka’s World Heritage Sites, Galle is reputed to be the port of Tarshish to which King Solomon of biblical fame sent merchant ships to procure “gold, silver, ivory, apes and peacocks”. The city boasts a magnificent Dutch fort which is its most popular attraction. Enjoy the Dutch atmosphere of the town which is still very much in evidence in and around the fort and its many historical streets, alleys and buildings even after 300 year. Join the local population in a leisurely stroll on the ramparts or visit the Old Dutch Government House, the Governor’s House (now a hotel) and the Groote Kerk (Great Church) built in 1755 and still being used by worshippers. The descendants of Arab traders from the time of Sinbad also call Galle home and like King Solomon you can also buy from them the precious pearls gems that have made Sri Lanka famous from time immemorial.

For all its architectural interest and charm Galle is one of the few spots on the south coast that does not have wide golden beaches but Unawatana just south of Galle was voted one of the top 12 beaches in the world and remains a favourite of visitors to the island.
