Period to visit: November to April and June to October (for the beaches). Galle Fort: All year round.
Galle is the perfect combination of history, Culture, great shopping, high quality restaurants, tropical feel and colourful beaches. One of the most important landmarks is by far the Galle Fort (Declared World Heritage by UNESCO), a walled town built by the Portuguese in the 16th Century and lately taken over by the Dutch in 1640. In 1796, Galle fell into the British control.
A few minutes from the ancient walls of Galle Fort is located Unawatuna beach, one of the most famous beaches of Sri Lanka for the young crowd looking for some nightlife but also for families and snorkellers who are looking for a quiet sea. In fact, the beach is protected by a coral reef that makes swimming very safe. Other beaches next to Galle are Talpe beach (“the millionaires stretch”), where many Sri Lankan Luxury Villas (see below the Villas located in this area) are located and the more peaceful Koggala, with long stretches of golden sand and palm-fringed beaches.
Mirissa and Weligama are sister towns on the opposite sides of the Weligama Bay.
