Southern part of Sri Lanka

I have the last three days in SL that I would like to spend at the Southern part of Sri Lanka

All I need is a quiet place, not necessary at the beach front

Thinking of Galle, but, accommodation there is expensive

Any advise?

Hi there,

Galle has no beach at all! Mirissa or U'tuna/Thalpe might fit you better...

All the best,

Thanks

I actually don't care much about beaches.

Just want advise where should I go and stay in southern part of SL

Is Galle having heavy rains at this time of the year?

Any simple yet clean accommodation you may want to refer to me.

Your advise please

Thanks

Hi again,

Nowhere in your info you tell what 'this time of the year' is hence impossible to tell about rains. General info here

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293961-c176578/Sri-L…

For simple, budget and clean acco you have more chances in Unuwatuna, Mirissa and Tangalle than in Galle as land prices in Galle are very high. Can't help with individual names as we stay in other categories in these towns.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

In June the more east the better. Hence Tangalle has less risk of intermonsoon showers, which can spoil about 1/3 of the days, than Mirissa-Unuwatuna-Galle area.

All the best,
