About the neighbourhood
The area provides plenty to do, whatever the length of your stay. Take a boat trip on the lake, or visit the numerous beaches, where you can enjoy swimming, surfing, snorkelling, diving, watersports, etc. Within 10- 40 minutes from the villa you can go whalewatching, do yoga, a canoe or cycling tour, visit Galle Fort, Koggala Lake, spice gardens, temples, tea plantation, turtle hatchery, get close up with elephants, etc. Further afield are the national parks at Yala, Udawalawe, Sinharaja and many more, but if all that sounds too strenuous, just curl up in a hammock with a book, have a massage or watch the wildlife from the balcony. .
Getting around
Transport, either by tuk tuk or minivan, is easily arranged on request. Please note that access to the property is via a narrow, unmade road/ track with cinnamon plantations on each side. A long, narrow 12 seater minivan can get up the track, but nothing larger. In the event of any problems we will bring guests and luggage the final part of the journey by tuktuk.
Car not needed
