Take A Trip To The Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery In Sri Lanka

Galle, Hikkaduwa, Bentola and Kosgoda

The day begins with visiting a noble and endearing venture, the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery. You will visit a Turtle conservation project that helps to preserve endangered turtles, hatches them with care and finally, releases them into the ocean. Get acquainted with five out of seven sea turtle species, some of which are critically endangered. Know more about the turtles, their habitat, and how the lives of sea turtle are at stake. The vibrant awareness campaign and the stories of Tsunami affected marine life is sure to leave you in awe. This tour is a perfect blend of information and entertainment.

Galle

Move on to our next location for the day, Galle. Adorned with colonial Dutch buildings, this sea-side city, rich in heritage and culture has several important sightseeing destinations. The prime attraction is an ancient Dutch fort, elegantly standing over a 35 hectare ground with the sea gushing on three sides.  Walk along the carved stones of the fort, or sit back in a small boutique cafe to admire Galle’s beauty. Make a stop at the Galle museum, and admire the restored Dutch building that houses it. From antique typewriters to colonial artifacts, the museum is quite an amusing place to enjoy your time. While in the city, also visit the Old Dutch church and British Church and observe its architectural beauty.

 

 

Hikkaduwa

Sri Lanka has been remarkably known for its traditional style of fishing with fishermen clinging on to sticks. As you proceed to Hikkaduwa, you can finally experience the ultimate style of fishing in the country. The sandy beaches of this coastal city, not far from Galle, is a major tourist attraction.

Another popularity of the city is the result of a magnificent coral reef, rich in colorful corals and fishes. So, if you’re in the mood to enjoy some water activities feel free to grab a snorkeling equipment, and enjoy the beauty of the coral sanctuary. Also, for non-divers, the glass bottom boats are an option to get a glimpse of the gardens of the fishes amidst the corals.

Maduganga Boat Ride

You can never be too tired for a boat trip, especially one along the serene blue waters away from the hustle of the town.  Maduganga River is the perfect place to enjoy a boat ride in tranquility. Famous for its 68 islets, the trip is relaxing and allows you several interesting spots along the bank of the islets. Watch prawn farming, appreciate the mangroves penetrating the grounds in their glory and enjoy the sights of Kingfishers flying by – the Maduganga boat trip is an ultimate relaxation after a long day.

Finally, the day comes to an end as you proceed to Colombo via Beruwala.
