Spend your day surfing or swimming in Thalpe and then enjoy a drink and a meal at popular restaurants such as Wijaya and Thalpe Beach. If you're up for a bike ride, you can walk over to Idle Bikes to book a bike tour through the rice patty fields of Hiniticala. Or if you prefer yoga, the tranquil Sri Yoga Shala is nearby with a variety of instructors and styles each day of the week. 


This 400 year old world herritage site offers a large selection of restaurants, shops and boutiques set within the walls of the historic Galle Fort. It's a great place to spend the day and only 20 minutes from Thalpe Bungalows. The owners of Thalpe Bungalows also own Crepe-ology, a popular Galle Fort restaurant, and Karma Collection, an exotic boutique offering art, fashion, homeware and tea. 


20 minutes south of Thalpe you'll find the iconic stilt fisherman in Kogala near the Fortress Hotel, a turtle hatchery and bird sanctuary near Kogala Lake. Continue past Kogala for some great surfing in Ahangama, or continue on to Welligama, a lovely fishing village and also a great place for beginner surfers. 



10 minutes to Unawatuna where you can take a dip in the Indian Ocean, surf, arrange a diving tour, or just hang out and relax at one of the many restaurants along the beach such as Kingfisher.
