Description

Simply take a relaxing day trip to charming Galle, known for its tranquility, stunning colonial buildings, secluded beach and scenic nature! Sri Lankans love to start their day with their bellies filled. Your host can show you the best place to grab a quick bite before heading on a river safari!

On this 1.5 hr boat ride, you can put your mind at ease as you sail through shady, lush mangroves and islands. It’s a wonderful way to see nature, the occasional iguana sleeping on a tree, and monkeys eat fruit. There’s even a fish spa!
Marvel at a very beautiful and quiet temple where a monk can give you a blessing. Hop on your boat and pass a hut in the middle of the river where locals love to quench their thirst with Sri Lanka’s national fruit: a refreshing king coconut.

Back on land, it’s time to head to jungle beach! This small and less touristy beach is the ideal place to chill out, enjoy the sun, have a cold drink and relax in tranquil nature. Your host can show you a local favorite place to grab a bite for lunch. Here you can enjoy the seaside, feel the wind in your hair and watch surfers catch waves. The Galle city bus and railway station are hotspots that can’t be missed.

Head to the Galle Fort and Old Dutch City, as the icing on the cake. With its beautiful colonial architecture, trendy shops, a lighthouse and the sea on three sides, this is the most romantic spot to top off your tour with a sunset.
