Woke up early the next day to explore the village before we checked out.
Western breakfast at the Spice Lounge.
Our driver fetched us promptly at 9am, and we were on the road again. We were going to explore Galle, thereafter to Negombo to meet the SANL trekking group. On one toilet break, we saw some locals sunning their funny looking crabs.
A short stopover at a beach in Hambantota.
One cute little tuk tuk and the awesome sky 🙂
We had a short visit at the Dondra Head Lighthouse, the tallest lighthouse in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka has lots of nice beaches, and Mirissa Beach is one of them.
Passed by more nice beaches… we should come here again for a diving trip.
Lunch at a wood carving restaurant.
Finally we reached the Galle Fort, which is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1988, for its cultural heritage value.
The Galle Lighthouse is Sri Lanka’s oldest light station dating back to 1848.
Galle used to be the main port on the island, until the arrival of the British, who developed the harbor at Colombo.
The sea side wall of the Galle Fort.
It is now a popular site for the locals too. We met some friendly students who were here for an excursion.
A pity we didn’t have much time to explore the beautiful Galle, cos’ we need to reach Negombo by 6pm to meet up with the group.
Our accommodation for the night was the Windmill Beach Hotel.
