Galle Holidays

As the capital of the southern province, Galle's colourful history make it the perfect holiday destination for families, couples and friends.

Galle steals the hearts of visitors from all over the world and is ideal for those who want a unique holiday experience As a Sri Lankan major city it goes the extra mile to make every holidaymaker's visit a lasting memory.

Most famously, Galle is known for its World Heritage Site, the Galle Fort. It is a must see whilst on the island. Built in the 17th century by the Portuguese, the fortress remained generally untarnished in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami. The fortress offers breathtaking views, history and stunning photo opportunities all wrapped into one.

Explore the culture this wonderful city has to offer. There are a number of charming backstreets for you to delve into. From gold and quirky jewellery, to textiles and ornaments, there are plenty of bargains to be found. Be sure to grab them whilst you can! A special treat for tea drinkers, the city is home to one of the most beautifully enchanting places to visit on the Southern Coast, Samakanda, an organic farm and tea plantation.

With plenty of different cuisines, home and international, everyone's taste-buds will be tingling and left wanting more (if there is still room!). If you're looking for a nice pick me up during the gorgeous Sri Lankan sunshine, then why not try a local iced coffee? Sri Lankan people are known to top theirs with ice-cream, making it both an energizer, and a refreshing snack/drink.

Just a short distance away from Galle, is what is now being called by most, 'the most beautiful and unspoiled beach in Southern Sri Lanka', Mirissa Beach.

With its background history, its rich culture and its beautiful scenery, it truly is a place not to be missed. Everything about Galle oozes charm and positivity. For a relaxing, charming holiday enquire with us now.
