Day 02
Boat Ride down Madu Ganga River and visit the turtle hatchery in Kosgoda x
After breakfast take a boat ride to the Sanctuary of the Madu Ganga River, a complex coastal ecosystem of mangroves and islands. It may be one of the last remaining tracts of pristine mangrove forests in Sri Lanka. A boat trip is a wonderful way of seeing some of the hundreds of species of plants and animals – monkeys feeding on fruit in the trees, a water monitor lizard glides slowly through the water, and cormorants, egrets and kingfishers wait patiently on the banks, eyeing the water for prey. There are around 64 islands in the river and lagoon, from a tiny speck housing a deserted shrine to one housing 250 families connected to the mainland with a very long footbridge. You can visit an island with a Buddhist monastery, where the friendly young monks will show you a 150-year-old book made of palm leaves and how they cook with cinnamon wood on an open fire. After lunch you will visit the turtle hatchery in Kosgoda. Return to your hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure. Overnight accommodation in Beruwala
Day 03
Visit Galle Dutch Fort x
After breakfast set out on a leisurely drive to Galle which was a major port in Sri Lanka before the construction of the breakwater at the Colombo Harbor in the 19th century. Historians believe Galle may be the Tarshish of Biblical times. Galle became prominent with the arrival of the Portuguese in 1505. The fort built by the Portuguese was destroyed by the Dutch who constructed the Fort you will visit today in 1663. The city of Galle has been declared a World Heritage. Later return to your hotel and enjoy your time by the pool or beach
