Sri Lanka time

image

For a while this had been on my Bucket list. A country with a rich past, gorgeous beaches and beach taking inland nature.

Our family trip started off in Galle. A cute little town with a rich history of the Portugees, Dutch and English settlers. Now it is being renovated and has numerous cafe’s, boutique hotels, shops and great restaurants.

Here is a short list!

Where to stay:

  • Fort Bazaar Hotel
  • Galle Fort Hotel
  • Amangalle
  • Mango House

Where to eat:

  • Tuk Tuk
  • Amangalle
  • Tuna & Crab
  • Poonie’s Kitchen
  • Fortaleza

One more thing, I know Sri Lanka is known for its tea. Not so strange that coffee is not a priority but for me with a slight coffee addiction, it is hard waking up! In Galle, after a little trial and error exercise the Fort Bazaar has my vote!

To do tips:

Go surfing! Just outside of the fort is Devata beach. Grab a tuk tuk to the Shack where you can rent a board, book a lesson and have a bite to eat. Open for breakfast.

Go to the beach and have lunch:

  • Wijaya Beach
  • WB beachclub
  • Talpe Beach Restaurant

If you have more time and want to really get Some waves drive down to Arugam Bay. It is quite a drive (4,5 hours) but well worth it. Book a room at Hideaway and enjoy the laid back surfers paradise.
