Explore a variety of things to do in Ahungalla

Overwhelm yourself with an abundance of attractions in, around, and beyond Ahungalla. Things to do, see, and hear seem endless when you step out of our Cove.

As the water flows inland from the Indian Ocean at Balapitiya Beach, a tropical collection of islets are scattered across the Madhu Ganga (river). From a boat safari, your journey will take you through mangroves, past wildlife, and back in time – to historical temples, including the Kothduwa Raja Viharaya, which not only preserves a 130-year old Bo tree, but is also said to have once sheltered the tooth relic of the Buddha.

Further down south, Sri Lanka’s famed Bawa architectural style of tropical modernism is brought to life in the lush Lunuganga and Brief Gardens, in Bentota. Down the coastline, Ambalangoda flourishes with colour as the mask-making capital of Sri Lanka, where a visit never fails to deliver first-hand insights on the cultural artistry. And finally, just 40 minutes away sits the historic city of Galle – a UNESCO World Heritage site, due to its pristine 17th century Dutch-colonial fort that has held its timeless magnetism with the introduction of several restaurants and retail boutiques.
