Sri Lanka’s Southernmost town - next stop Antarctica!
Where the sea meets sky
Turtles, temples, giant Buddha statues, rural fishing outposts and the endless ocean on the horizon. Located on Southern Sri Lanka’s beautiful stretch of coastline, Tangalle remains unspoilt, offering a peaceful, idyllic setting. There’s much to explore though. The Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary, a haven for migrants and endemics, is a must do for birders. Another site worth visiting - being the topic of many legends and lore, is Ussangoda.

Some claim that in ancient times a meteor had crashed on this barren plateau of dark red soil surrounded by forest; hence its distinctly foreboding air.
