Thangalle
Many people claim that the beaches around Tangalle have the softest sand and the safest sea along the entire south coast. Tangalle seems set to become the most exclusive of the beaches along the south coast, and offers a chance to scuba dive around the coral reef protecting its four kilometres of sandy beach, and to explore a couple of wrecks. You could also watch nesting marine turtles drag themselves ashore at night to lay their eggs at Rekwalla.

One side of Tangalle bears a small hillock, with a bird’s eye view of the surrounding bay up to the far horizon of the palm fringed beach and the shimmering sea. Tangalle boasts of clear soft sandy beach and surfing.
The couple of protective bays has made Tangalle a popular port from the ancient times to date and, today, is an important fishing town, as well as a perfect place for those who desire a quiet, relaxed holiday with sun, sand, surf, snorkel and swim.

The most popular spots for sea bathing, sunbathing, swimming, surfing and also snorkeling are situated in the nearby tiny villages by the sea like Medilla, Goyambokke, Pallikaduwe, Mawella, Kudawella and Seenimodera.
