Explore the beautiful south coast and its Galle Fort.
The south coast of Sri Lanka offers something for anyone: Wander the UNESCO listed Galle Fort, best early in the morning or late afternoon when it's cool.
Go to town and check out a sari shop or get a shave and haircut.
Off to Dewata beach and learn to surf, while you are there try a short eat at Sahana.
Take a tuk tuk up to Hikkaduwa to see/feed the turtles on the beach.
Jump on a bike and ride a couple of k to 'water for elephants', or a river trip on Gin Ganga.
Go to Udawalawe to see elephants or down to Yala for the leopards.
