It is quiet and easy going with a pace seemingly even more relaxed than the rest of the island. True to its reputation as the home of jewellery design in Sri Lanka the Fort and the surrounding town is full of jewellery shops. Galle is also, and to some more so, famous for its international cricket pitch. Watching a game from the top of the 300 years old Fort ramparts is to be able to enjoy cricket like you never thought possible. A short journey by three wheeler takes you to beautiful beaches including ' one of the most beautiful in the world' at Unawatuna.
