Picture a mile of pristine golden beach stretching along the coast with the warm waters of the Indian Ocean lapping at its fringes - this is Koggala. Located just 2 hours south of Colombo, Koggala features a handful of small luxury hotels and a serene beach, the perfect place for a relaxing beach holiday. It is a place to enjoy leisurely strolls along the beach, lazy days in the sun or just relaxing in the gentle shade under a leafy palm tree. Koggala is famous locally as the home of the great Sri Lankan novelist Martin Wikramasinghe and is also well known for the traditional stilt fishing which is a common sight in these areas. Koggala backs on to lakes, lagoons and lush forests which are popular for bird watching and exploring. Koggala is also close to the city of Galle which is famous for its Dutch fort and other attractions. A Koggala holiday offers idyllic beaches and the perfect mix of relaxation, exploration and adventure.
