The southernmost city on the island, Galle combines colonial-era history with a tropical feel and climate.
Explore hidden gems such as Scuba & Snorkeling and Ahungalla Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Mirissa Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Galle side-trips: Community Tsunami Museum (in Hikkaduwa) and Tsunami Photo Museum (in Telwatta). And it doesn't end there: look for gifts at Cara Jewellers, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sea Turtle Farm and Hatchery, enjoy the sand and surf at Jungle Beach, and view the masterpieces at Saffron Robes Gallery and Studio.
