Local Attractions

You don't have to venture far from the guest house to find interesting places to visit during your stay.
Galle is only 20 minutes away by Tuk-Tuk and the Old Fort area is definately worth a look, stroll round the ramparts or just wander to streets visiting local shops.
The Rock Temple at Yatagala is close by and is a fascinating ancient temple a 45 min walk through the lanes past paddy fields makes a very enjoyable trip. Try to go on Poya day when people gather to light candles remember to wear something white.
A trip to the Jungle Beach ( by boat or tuk tuk ) and a walk up to the Japanese Temple is another great trip and you can snorkel and fish at the same time.
Unawatuna is a busy village and resort with a good beach and many shops and cafes although recent sand erosion has damaged the beach and some of the beachfront restaurants.
Habaraduwa has a turtle sanctuary and a local market on Wednesdays
