If you’re looking for a taste of laidback Sri Lanka, holidays to Ahungalla fit the bill perfectly. The beach here is as pretty as they come, and pleasantly crowd-free.
Laidback Sri Lanka
There’s not much going on in Ahungalla, but that’s precisely its appeal. This quiet beach town on Sri Lanka’s south-west coast was made for relaxed, take-it-easy holidays. The stretch of coast here is among the best in this part of the country. Picture a wide swathe of golden sand, washed by the Indian Ocean and backed by rows of palm trees.
Holidays here tend to play out on the beach or by your hotel pool. But if you’re looking for more of a taste of Sri Lanka, there are plenty of attractions within easy reach. Head further south to the town of Galle, and you can explore the historic fort and watch the traditional stilt fishermen at work. Further inland, the country’s tea plantations and national parks are waiting to be discovered.
