Tangalle Beach

Tangalle Beach (also called Tangalla) encapsulates all that is alluring about this part of Sri Lanka: An unspoiled stretch of sand and a constant crash of waves make the area popular with both sunseekers and surfers. Take a break from the sun-worshipping and wander nearby among the secluded, rocky coves, the water frothing at your feet. Depending on the season, up to five different species of sea turtles can be seen visiting the shore to lay eggs.
