Where to stay in Galle

A handful of accommodations can be found within the walls of the historic fort at Galle, including upmarket hotels and simple guesthouses, although the relatively few options usually can't cater to the number of visitors to the old town. Unless you reserve your spot well in advance, chances are you'll be looking just north of the fort where, closer to the waterfront, sit a range of upscale boutiques with sea views, and further back, a good number of simpler guesthouses and hotels. Nearby beach towns, and Colombo, remain popular places to stay among visitors just wanting to take a day trip to Galle.
