Day 5: Excursion to Galle

Highlight 

  • Bike tour in the historic port city of Galle (UNESCO World Heritage) 

Before the arrival of the Portuguese in the 16th century, Galle was the island’s main port and reached the height of its development in the 18th century during the Dutch colonial era. Magnificent buildings and the fortress around the old town bear witness to the eventful history of the historic port city. 

Experience the unmistakable colonial flair on a leisurely bike tour over the walls of the well-preserved fortress and through the alleys of the partly renovated old town with its beautiful shops and cafés. On the promenade in front of the lighthouse, snake charmers and cliff divers provide easy thrills!

Day 7: Mirissa - Kirinda - Tissamaharama

Highlights 

  • Visit to the Kirinda Vihara Maha Devi 
  • Safari in Yala National Park 

You leave Mirissa and continue south: through lively seaside resorts along the coast, this road trip takes you on the panoramic road on the Indian Ocean to the Yala Conservation Area. On the coast, the famous stilt fishermen stand in the water, ready for the obligatory photo. Very Instagramable! 

The Kirinda Vihara Maha Devi Temple is located on a very special dream beach on a rock directly by the sea. The rugged beach is wild and lonely here. The contrast between the roaring sea and the unshakable silence of the temple visits an impressive experience. A short hike leads to a hidden natural pool where you can swim safely. 

In the afternoon your jeep safari to the “Big Five” numbers 3 to 5 starts: elephants, sloth bears, and leopards. 

Yala National Park on the eastern south coast is Sri Lanka’s most popular national park. There is a multitude of wild animals to watch here: in addition to the spectacular “Big Three”, you will see crocodiles, mongooses, monkeys, and a further 30 species of mammals as well as 130 species of birds in the extensive national park, which is characterized by savanna-like plains and monsoon forests.

Day 8: Tissamaharama - Madunagala - Tangalle

Highlights 

  • Visit the cave monastery “Madunagala” on the umbrella rock 
  • Drive to Tangalle 

Dating back to the Anuradhapura era, the Madunagala Hermitage is a hidden gem and an insider tip for travelers. Monks still live here today. The connected Kudalena Cave is the only cave in Sri Lanka with 2 floors. On the plateau, there is a natural pool that is populated exclusively by cheeky monkeys. The rock is shaped like an umbrella. Those who manage to climb up here have escaped the world and enjoy a wonderful view. 

You can reach your next beach resort in Tangalle, one of the most beautiful seaside resorts on the south coast. The white beach is divided into mini bays by small rocks, which create a romantic picture with palm trees in the background. The quiet place allows undisturbed moments like in paradise. A dreamlike atmosphere to relax! 

Giant tortoises occasionally cross paths when bathing and surfing. Please give way!

Day 11: Excursion to Rekawa Beach

Highlight 

  • Visit of the Turtle Conservation Project in Rekawa 

Sea turtles cavort on the lonely beaches of Rekawa every night and lay their eggs here undisturbed. Five out of seven species come to the beaches of the south coast at night, bury their eggs in the sand, and leave them unattended. 

Volunteers from the Turtle Conservation Project lead you to the sandy nests with 50 to 100 eggs when it gets dark. Witness this natural wonder and support the animal rights activists in digging up the eggs! 

These are hatched in a shelter to protect them from predators and thieves, and the young turtles are released a few days after hatching on the beach, from where they find their way into the sea.
