Located on a hill and mostly a nature reserve with a lot of biodiversity. Visit the Japanese Peace Pagoda for spectacular views and Jungle Beach while you're here. Recommended to walk/hike through the jungle while listening to birds and other species.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, for its unique exposition of "an urban ensemble which illustrates the interaction of European architecture and South Asian traditions from the 16th to the 19th centuries. Built first in 1588 by the Portuguese, then extensively fortified by the Dutch during the 17th century from 1649 onward. This is the top tourist attraction in Sri Lanka. You will find the trendiest shops and restaurants side by side plus many temples, churches, and mosques as well as museums. Set a full day aside to explore. Walk the ramparts during sunset for an unforgettable experience.

An ancient way of fishing. Recommended to visit after 4pm close to sunset. Since this has become so touristic recently they will expect you to pay a small fee to take pictures of the fisherman or get on stilts. Negotiate the price in advance to avoid unpleasant situation.

A beautiful lake in Koggala where you can take boat trips and enjoy natural beauty. Rich bio diversities and eco systems.The Lagoon is scattered with eight small islands. The islands consist of lush mangrove swamps. Anchored in mud, the mangrove roots are coated with a variety of creatures, including barnacles, oysters and crabs. The dense, intertwining roots serve as nurseries for many fish species. There are seven islands in the lagoon, that can be reached by boat. The most famous of the islands is ‘Madol Doova' (Mangrove Island Sinhala: මඩොල් දූව)’, which is described in detail by Martin Wickramasinghe in his novel, Madol Doova. Recommenced day trip.
