Your south coast adventure begins in Galle and takes you to some of the most popular locations around the historic city. The ancient town of Galle is steeped in history that dates back to when the Portuguese first invaded the island. Following their invasion, they built the Galle Fort to keep other invaders out, however, the fort and the country quickly fell to the hands of the Dutch and later the British who fortified the fort. Stroll through the bricked-ramparts and you’ll find the towering Galle Clock tower and the Galle Lighthouse, both with an interesting story that will excite history buffs. Surrounding this beautiful town are the coastal cities of Unawatuna, Thalpe and Rummasala; the latter is most known for the Peace Pagoda that was built here to promote peace on the island.
