My wife and I have just returned from Sri Lanka and a highlight of our trip was the stay at Rockside Cabanas. We highly recommend reserving a bungalow-it'll cost more and there's no A/C, but listening to the waves lap against the shore, which is just a few short steps away was sublime. The beach fronts a rich area for marine wildlife, with corals abundant-we would wade in water waist deep and be surrounded by tiny, colorful fish while crabs scampered over the rocks; if you climb out to the big rock early in the morning/at twilight, you can see sea turtles coming in to feed. Galle Fort is a 20 minute tuk tuk ride away, with drivers located right outside the gate-both nights we stayed, we indulged in the history, view, shopping, and dining. One last comment-one day for lunch, we walked down the beach to the nearest restaurant and had a delicious meal, one of my favorite ever dishes (seafood pasta). Huge thumbs up for everything about Rockside Cabanas!
