Things to do in Galle

  • Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project
    Everybody loves turtles. Admit it, you do too. The Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project is a beautiful organization that takes care of the turtles of Galle. Ever since the tsunami that happened in 2004, these people are helping the animals to restore, give medical care and a place for them to hatch (which is beautiful to see), and cuddle them. That’s right. If you always wanted to cuddle a turtle, this is the place. Entrance is completely free.
  • Jungle Beach
    It is a beach, and as soon as you get there, you’ll realize why it is called the “Jungle beach”. Yellow sand, companioned by green trees. You’ll get completely relaxed as soon as you get here. People actually noticed that time stops as soon as you are exploring this beautiful piece of nature.
  • Bike tours
    Although countries like Sri Lanka haven’t accepted the bicycle as a way of transportation as much as in more western countries, there are several bike tours available.

Tim Hana

Day trip from Prague to Dresden, Germany

Hana picked us up right on time in a clean comfortable BMW X5. She made the 2 hour drive so enjoyable and is very easy to talk with. She is a wealth of knowledge and so interesting to talk with. She had a water for us, and made sure we were comfortable for the trip. We went to Cesky Krumlov and she gave us inside tips and a great history lesson while we were there and on the way. She talked to the locals and found the best places for coffee and even bought a sample shot of the local wine made from honey. Doing a private trip is worth every dollar spent over a large tour bus! I wish we would have had more time, I would have booked another private trip with her for sure!
