An Adventure on the South Coast of Sri Lanka – A Journey of New Discoveries

Sri Lanka’s southern coast is a must visit for any thalassophile. It is a paradise of golden beaches, separated into small bays. However, it is also home to many cultural attractions worth visiting.

Madol Duwa

Madol Duwa was a legendary island in one of the books authored by Martin Wickramasinghe. Following his book, the island has now become a popular place to visit. The island is located in Koggala on the Galle – Colombo main road.

Galle Dutch Fort

The Galle Dutch Fort was built by the Dutch during the mid-17th century. The later arrival of the British made some additions to the fort, encircling the city, interrupted by 14 massive bastions. If you want to explore the fort thoroughly, then the best thing is to walk the length of the walls. The whole walk will take about 90 minutes.
