“Lighthouse from the postcard!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

That's a very picturesque lighthouse however the one in Dondra looks much more attractive. You will find around lots of snake-charmers and a strange guys who will ask your money for their jump from the cliff into the water...

“A lighthous very plain and simple..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Yes a simple 1938 lighthouse - not very exciting and not terribly photogenic either. Would not go out of my way to see again....

“Good View”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Its a good place to visit at the time of sun set. Dont forget to take your camera and capture some classic shots in the area. Although it nothing different from other light houses the view around makes it different.

“Beautiful view at sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Take a walk along the ramparts and take in the sea, view of the rocks and sunset. Enjoy it all with locals and tourists who have come to take it all in. Take a camera.

“Iconic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

The scenery here is breathtaking and a picture can't be perfect without the Galle Fort Lighthouse at the background. When in Galle, you will no doubt making your way here anyhow.
