DAY 5

Breakfast at the Hotel

Proceed to Hikkaduwa, en- route visit Habaraduwa turtle Hatchery. It is a non-profitable organization located as well as a popular tourist attraction in Sri Lanka. Habaraduwa is 5 km from the Galle – Matara Road. In order to conserve turtles and other marine species, the small hatchery was firstly started in 1986. Sri Lankan beaches are reckoned as a favorable breeding spot of the sea turtles. In case Bentota, Induruwa, Kosgoda, Ahungalle, Unawatuna, and Balapitiya are few of the most preferred nesting areas of the Sea turtles.

Also make a stop at the Galle city discovering the old and the new. Discovering people amidst a wonderful mix of architecture and culture.

Taking a stroll down the old town with interesting street names would be like a walk down memory lane, reminiscing Ceylon in the Colonial days.

Impatient to find out what you will explore here? Here you go!

Portuguese constructed and Dutch fortified majestic Galle Fort and the landmarks within the premises such as the Galle National Museum depicting history and the life of the Galle inhabitants; the Fort Library - the treasure trove of rare books; Galle maritime Museum, heritage houses in the narrow alleys and the mix bag of boutiques and shops in every nook and corner selling antiques, souvenirs, jewellery, arts and crafts; eateries and art galleries. 

This excursion will have you walking quite a bit. Still you would have plenty to see a second time around too.

Continue to Hikkaduwa

With plenty of beachfront accommodation and a reputation as the second best surf spot in Sri Lanka, the reason why so many visit Hikkaduwa is blatantly clear. The resort area has now engulfed two or three villages south of it, and is now a 4km strip of hotels, shops, bars, restaurants and guesthouses. The beaches are lovely and wide and swimming is safe here, though the currents are stronger when it comes to the south of Hikkaduwa. The impressive coral reef runs just offshore and is still populated by exotic fish and sea turtles. Glass bottomed boats are available for visitors wanting to admire the wonders of the deep while keeping their feet dry! After a short distance southwards from the centre of the reef, it diminishes and starts a wider sandy bottomed beach with good wave’s ideal for board surfing and body surfing.

You can always rent the necessary equipment needed for snorkelling and surfing from a number of places Hikkaduwa is an established tourist destination and the surfing there is quite well known.

Spend your late evening relaxing by the Hikkaduwa beach
