About the neighbourhood
Our neighbourhood will give you a real insight to the people of Sri Lanka. All the neighbours are friendly and ready to help you in which ever way possible. You can walk around and feel completely safe. The easiest way to get around is by tuk-tuk. Of course if you want to be a bit more adventurous you can always try the public bus. The villa is located about 15-20 min from the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site Galle Fort. You can roam the streets of the Fort and take in the various architectural differences that date back to the Portuguese and Dutch Colonisation. About a 10-15 min drive from Villa Alexandra you can visit Unawatuna Beach where you can enjoy various water sports such as jet skiing and diving. Furthermore, the famous Japanese Peace Pagoda is found on the top of the hill ...
Getting around
It is easy to get around with our local transport, such as tuk-tuk. We work with 2 brothers who have tuk-tuks and vans so if you need anything you can just give them a call and they will come and take you around. If you want to be a bit more adventurers you can catch a bus or also jump on the train at Kathaluwa Train Station, which is about a 5 min tuk-tuk ride from the villa.
