Galle Holidays

The provincial town and port of Galle is located on the south-west coast of Sri Lanka, 75 miles to the south of Colombo city. Galle holidays offer beautiful beaches, historic sights and lively town lifestyle.

Galle has a long history of Dutch and British occupation. Around Galle town and beach, you will come across plenty of Dutch and British historic buildings. Churches, colonial style hotels, the Government House and clock tower, including several old-style cottages and residential buildings give Galle its character and charm. Notable sights are the 17th century Dutch Fort and the British lighthouse. The Dutch Fort is a World Heritage Site, while the lighthouse paves the way to the picturesque old town of Galle located on the banks of the Indian Ocean. The narrow lanes and wide streets of the old town are lovely to walk by at sundown.
