Galle and the South-West Coast holidays

The south-west region is popular due to its proximity to the airport. The main attraction is the historic Galle city and it’s fort, which is a world heritage site. Here, upmarket luxury and character-rich boutique properties are easy to find, a lot of them with a heavy influence from the colonial period. Along the coast in both directions there are numerous coastal towns and villages such as Bentota and Ahangama, perfectly located to allow visitors to discover the region’s vibrant cultural heritage and miles of pristine beaches.
