Known for its magnificent Fort and strong ramparts, along with the historical buildings that rise within these fortifications, Galle is a much visited tourist destination with many resorts, villas and small bed and breakfasts places offering tourists quality living spaces. Even the Galle Lighthouse is a must visit place along these strong walls. Other than sightseeing, Galle has many activities that you can enjoy while we recommend a few water based ones since Galle is located along the Southern coastal belt. The closest whale population can be witnessed away in the southern sea while the pods can include blue whales, fin whales, sperm whales and sometimes even an occasional killer whale also known as orca. The ideal time to see these magnificent mammals from Galle will be during the months of December to April.
