Beaches Historic Sites Nature
Among Sri Lanka's nine administrative units, Southern Province remains a top tourist destination for both domestic and foreign visitors. A holiday in Southern Province usually includes visits to important natural attractions, such as wildlife sanctuaries sheltering hundreds of species of birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Visitors looking to enrich their Southern Province itinerary with a few cultural sites generally head to Galle, which thrived as a major port during the Dutch colonial period. Today, this provincial capital lures travelers with its historic 16th-century fort, as well as a good selection of museums, temples, and churches. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Southern Province and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
