Around and About

The coastal ribbon of Koggala enjoys a tranquil tempo and laid-back lifestyle. Fringed by a reef of corals which is teeming with a shoal of fish, the beach of Koggala is relatively less touristy and uncrowded. Lazing on its soft quilts of white sands are palm trees, winding up the tropical summer picture. Stilt fishermen can be spotted along the beach, practicing long-lived, exotic fishing techniques. Perched on stilts, they wait in anticipation of mackerels, armed with traditional fishing rods. Admire 200 year old murals at the Kataluwa Purwarama Temple. Partake in a boat ride on the Koggala Lake and immerse in its bird life and charming little islets.

15-KM from Koggala, the Galle Fort enjoys a romantic spot on the bay of Galle luxuriating in a pastiche of Portuguese, Dutch and British architecture. Ramble through the magic of old and bask in the beauty of a quaint clock tower, 3 ½ century old church, lighthouse, old-world houses and other colonial landmarks. Bask in the adventure of a morning whale watching excursion in the seas of Mirissa, located 20-KM from Koggala. The quaint, dreamy beach of Unawatuna that falls 10-KM from Koggala is ideal for snorkeling and surfing.

You lounge on the white-sand beaches of Koggala, oblivious to the ticking of time. Ah, Koggala, you are a cotton cloud of summer bliss.
