    Stop At: Weligama Beach, Matara Sri Lanka

    The sprawling main settlement and coastal road is somewhat scruffy and not that easy on the eye, but you'll find the sandy beach is attractive once you're away from the main section; there's a couple of cove beaches west of the center. If you're looking for a place away from the hustle and bustle of Mirissa and the main Weligama beach area go to this beautiful quiet spot and enjoy the peace, swimming, surfing and beds to lay on Weligama beach with a wide bay, the water is warm and clear, the beach is broad and welcoming The town and the fisherman are all nearby, the beach can suffer mild pollution at times, and sand fly’s on the beach, take special care of any cuts after a period of heavy rain.

Free guided tour and then buy some tea at the shop. You also learn about the Virgin White Tea which this estate is famous for. In addition to the Signature Virgin White, the factory is also known for other award-winning teas such as Ceylon Souchong, Saphire Oolong, and Flowery Cammellia.

    Stop At: Kushta Raja Gala, Matara Sri Lanka

    This more than life size relief carved in solid rock is thought to be one of the best statues in the Mahayanist Buddhism in Sri Lanka. The origination of this sculpture is not known but many theories and folklore exists on the creation of the statue. Once a foreign king suffering from a severe skin disease (‘kushta” in Singhalese) has landed in the Weligama bay and was treated by a local doctor. This king was restored to his original strength and to remember him a image of him was carved and this was known to be “Kushta Raja Gala” or Rock of the Kushta King. Believed to be once a part of the ancient Aggrabodhi Viharaya, the temple still retains its ancient charm despite being left to the effects of nature.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Taprobane Island, Sri Lanka

    It is a tiny island, nearly two and a half acres and has one, single villa made in the 1920s! The island, with its neo palladian mansion, has played host to kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers, aristocracy, writers and eccentrics, giving it a very colorful history, which guests can now share.Even though the island is small, there are many activities one can take partake. Since the island is located 150 meters from the coast, the only way to reach here is by surfing or by boat, if you do not know how to swim. The height of the water is also quite low, reaching about 4 to 5 feet in height, at most.
