About the neighbourhood
Galle town centre including the famous historic Galle Fort and Ramparts are approximately 20 minutes away in a tuk tuk. The walled city bears witness to the past through its architecture and grand old buildings, street names and Dutch churches. The Fort has many interesting bijou gift shops and jewellers who sell amazing designs. Turtles can be seen from the sea in the early evening from the Rampart. Sri Lanka's famous cricket ground can also be viewed from the Rampart. The beach at Unawatuna is approximately 2 miles from the house, popular activities such as scuba diving or trips in glass bottom boats can be arranged from here. The beach is also safe for swimming and snorkelling. Bike tours can also be arranged from the house.
