A picturesque fishing village on the southern coast of Sri Lanka.
Ahungalle is a picturesque fishing village on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Although there are few attractions in the Ahungalle area, it is a very popular town for tourists on their holidays in Sri Lanka. That may seem odd, but Ahungalle has some of the most beautiful beaches in the entire country. Close to Galle, Ahungalle is THE place for travelers looking for a luxury Sri Lanka holiday. Five star resorts line the beaches, as do restaurants that offer up some of the best food in the country.
When you are tired of relaxing on the gorgeous white sand beaches you can head over to Ambalangoda, a city famous for its ancient hand-carved masks. For the nature-lovers, spend a day at Sinharaja Forest Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the most bio-diverse regions in Sri Lanka. The Sinharaja Forest Reserve is a two-hour drive from Ahungalle, but well worth the trip if you are looking for a full-day excursion.
Ahungalle looks like it was made to be featured on a post-card. Pristine beaches as far as the eye can see, palm trees swaying in the breeze, and crystal clear turquoise waters that you will be dreaming about long after your vacation is over. Whether you are looking for a place to spend a relaxing weekend on your trip around Sri Lanka, or a holiday where you do nothing but bask in the tropical sun, Ahungalle will not disappoint.
