Experiences in WeligamaBack
Weligama, which is found around an hour’s drive from Galle, is well-known for its brilliant surfing beach, so try your hand and take lessons with a local instructor. You can also go wind-surfing, sailing, deep sea fishing and whale watching. Alternatively, head to nearby Mirissa Bay for the day, a stunning beach which is a popular tourist destination and provides many things for travelers to do, particularly water-sports. If you’re looking for a break from the beach and a taste of Sri Lanka’s culture and history, then a visit to the 17th century Dutch Galle Fort will not disappoint. Enjoy browsing the boutiques, walking the streets and meeting the local people and explore the beautiful old buildings which remain here from the Dutch and British colonial periods. Have high tea at one of the cafes or hotels before taking a walk along the ramparts at sunset.
