The southernmost city on the island, Galle combines colonial-era history with a tropical feel and climate.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Dolphin & Whale Watching and Cara Jewellers. Venture out of the city with trips to Hikkaduwa (Community Tsunami Museum & Tsunami Honganji Vihara), Tsunami Photo Museum (in Telwatta) and Ahungalla Beach (in Ahungalla). There's still lots to do: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mahamevnawa Buddhist Monastery, relax in the rural setting at Handunugoda Tea Estate, and identify plant and animal life at Sea Turtle Farm.

To find maps, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Galle journey planning website .

Traveling by combination of taxi and flight from Kandy to Galle takes an hour. Alternatively, you can drive; or do a combination of train and bus. In March in Galle, expect temperatures between 38°C during the day and 29°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 31st (Sun) to allow time for travel back home.
