Unawatuna
.
Another beautiful town on the south coast of Sri Lanka. It’s known for its coral reef and its palm-lined beaches, just like this one. 🌴
.
.
We would recommend staying a night or two here. There is loads to do and the settings you find along exploring are worth it! 
After sunset, bars come to life where you can lay on beach beds, have a shisha or a drink and relax.

GALLE
.
Galle is a city on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka. It’s known for Galle Fort, the fortified old city founded by Portuguese colonists in the 16th century. Stone sea walls, expanded by the Dutch, encircle car-free streets with architecture reflecting Portuguese, Dutch and British rule.
.
Is worth a day visit to check out the Fort and the old town. We could definitely see the English influence. It was very charming but is now full of boutique shops for tourists so not quite the Sri Lankan experience we hoped for. .

Weligama - Surf Day! .
Weligama, translated as sandy village, is a great place to learn to surf, about a two kilometre stretch of shallow sandy beach. One of the best places in south Sri Lanka to discover a connection with the ocean and catch your first wave.
.
.
We took the opportunity to have surfing lessons and then venture out on our own. We LOVED it, many laughs, failed attempts and great achievements. I think we found a new hobby! .

Matara Lighthouse
.
Standing at the Southern most point of Sri Lanka, the Dondra Head Lighthouse built by British in 1889. Sondra lighthouse is one of the highest in South East Asia.
.
On our way from Tangalle to Mirissa our driver was kind enough to show us this beautiful site on the most southern point of Sri Lanka. .

Tangalle
.
A night in Tangalle was needed after so many adventurous days. All we needed was a break on a beautiful calm beach to start our Sri Lankan coast experience.

Yala National Park
.
Yala National Park is a huge area of forest, grassland and lagoons bordering the Indian Ocean, in southeast Sri Lanka.
.
My phone camera couldn't do justice to what we have seen but we felt lucky for witnessing what we did. A leopard hunting, many elephants including a 2 month old with two adult female (we felt it was a sign!) 😆 
We also seen many water buffalos, baby monkey, loads of peacocks, exotic birds, alligators, wild pigs (Pumba!), deers, antílopes, mongooses, storks and lizards.
And the best of all, all in their natural habitat without human intervention which is how it should be. .

Nine Arches Bridge
.
The Nine Arch Bridge also called the Bridge in the Sky. It is one of the best examples of colonial-era railway construction in the country. And part of what is considered the most scenic train ride in the world.
.
We jumped out of bed 6 o'clock to try and get a good glimpse of this beautiful bridge before it got packed with tourists. There is also a train between 6.30-7am which only adds to the experience. A 100% must see.

Diyaluma Falls
.
Diyaluma Falls is 220 m high and the second highest waterfall in Sri Lanka and 361st highest waterfall in the world.
.
As alluring as it's name may suggest Diyaluma Falls is an adventure in itself. A hidden waterfall that isn't the easiest to find. After going off the beaten track through crop fields, people's gardens and a little jungle you can be welcomed to the top with three natural pools of crystal clear water to swim in. Truly amazing!

Ella Rock 🏞️
.
Very popular hike offering dramatic views from the mountain's peak. Stunning views to Little Adam's Peak and Ella Gap. .
As many say, this is a hike which you are guaranteed to get lost without a guide but we love a challenge and although we did get a little lost.. 🤸 we made it to the top just fine. It was more fun and adventurous to do it alone than following a local. The climb to the top took us an hour give or take, the view from the summit is incredible and there are 3 different view points to explore.
.

Honey Bee Garden Cooking Class
.
Sri Lankan cooking class just made with love from beginning to end. 4 different delicious vegan curries + sambal + rice + pappadums.
.
Ruwini is a house wife and carries generations of cooking experience, she was amazing. Everything was fresh and most spices she grew in her garden and prepared herself. Even the coconut milk we made it from scratch. And we got to eat our own dishes at the end. One of our favourites so far! Loved it 🥥🌶️🥬❤️
