Where to stay in Tangalle

The main place to look for accommodations in Tangalle remains the town's popular scenic coastline. Close to the main residential area of the town center, you'll find some luxury and standard resorts and beachfront hotels, with things getting more secluded and luxurious as you work your way along the coast in either direction. Look inland for tucked-away rentals on fruit plantations, still within easy reach of the main sandy beaches.
