Located on Sri Lanka's southeastern coast, about two hours east of Galle, Tangalle is home to some of the best beaches on all of the island and the superb and secluded Amanwella resort, making a great culmination of any trip to Sri Lanka. It's also a launch pad into nearby Yala National Park and the excellent safari opportunities there.

Kudawella Blowhole

Stop also at the Kudawella “blowhole” on the edge of the ocean, a unique natural formation where pressure from the crashing surf forcefully shoots water out of a crevice in a seaside cliff.

Mulgirigala Monastery

Visit Mulgirigala, an ancient and historically very important monastery atop a rock that, like Sigiriya, rises nearly 700 feet (213 meters) above the surrounding forest. Here, a key archaeological discovery was made in the 19th century, when tea-leaf scripts found in a cave atop the rock proved to be a “Rosetta Stone,” enabling the translation of Sri Lanka’s oldest texts.

Wewurukannala Buddhist Temple

Visit Wewurukannala Buddhist Temple in Dikwella, whose 160-foot high seated Buddha statue dates to the late 18th century. Wewurukannala is a working temple with resident monks, some of whom you will be able to meet with and talk about their spiritual practice.
