Day tour of Galle


Galle, around 116 kilometers from Colombo, is a unique treasure of a town in Sri Lanka’s southern area. The old Galle Fort, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, is also located in the town, making it a popular destination for everyone who appreciates the beach and sea. The area provides a multitude of gorgeous views and activities for every enthusiastic tourist. A day trip of Galle may be organized from either Colombo or the South Coast, and we recommend departing from Colombo at 8 a.m. or the South Coast at 9 a.m. This allows you to make the most of your day excursion while avoiding traffic.

Locations covered

  • Galle Fort – This fortified city is regarded as the throbbing center of Galle’s history. It was erected by the Portuguese after the city was taken from the Sinhala Kings in the 16th century. Later, in the 17th century, the Dutch overcame the Portuguese, capturing and expanding the Fort. It is a UNESCO World Heritage monument that illustrates the extraordinary fusion of European and South Asian civilizations.
  • Madhu River – A river safari on this popular river is a must for any nature lover. It flows through a unique landscape, surrounded by swampy marsh lands rich with mangrove forests, thus creating a large number of islands that enrich the eco-system, forming a beautiful wetland filled with a wide variety of animal species.
  • Turtle hatchery- Visit the Turtle Hatchery in Galle to become a nature fighter and learn more about sea turtle protection. It rescues turtles who have become entangled in fishing nets or have been killed for flesh.
  • Unawatuna Beach – One of the top beach spots in Sri Lanka and the world, the bay is surrounded by a reef and therefore a safe place to swim and snorkel. This is a must-see place for everyone who enjoys the sun, the sea, and having a good time.
  • Stilt Fisherman in Weligama – This form of fishing is unique to Sri Lanka and was once a traditional manner of fishing that is being used today. The fishermen are seated across a wooden bar known as a “Petta,” which is attached to a rope tied to a vertical pole driven into the sand.
