Galle: The Popular Sport activities

Galle: What to do when you get there?

Galle, located south west of Sri Lanka - and about 120km from Colombo - is a UNESCO World Heritage site because of its rich architectural and historical heritage. The city was indeed a key trading post and a prime witness of the commercial ties between Asia and Europe between the sixteenth and eighteenth century.

This walled city will charm you with its cultural and architectural diversity and you will have the opportunity to visit the Groote Kerk, the National Museum or you can take a walk along the coast to admire the old city's fortifications.

But Galle is also known to be a paradise destination for outdoor sports activities. Its waves are particularly renowned, with many good spots to suit all surfing levels. But other activities are also on the menu with windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaking, etc.

For all these water activities, you will enjoy warm, clear waters and beautiful palm-fringed beaches. The riches of the seabed and local fauna also make Galle a superb scuba-diving destination.

Come and discover this exotic destination combining cultural and natural riches!
