Edit info
Go later in the day or the sun is crazy hot - the fort is not that clean but interesting enough to walk around.

This historic section of Galle is one of its most beautiful areas. Be sure to enjoy a stroll along the cliff with its ocean views and the Galle lighthouse within view.

Also known as the Galle Fort, this is part of Galle's UNESCO complex that's been around since the 1500s. It's been under Portuguese, Dutch and other 'management' to now being a museum.

First to Review

Galle Fort (Dutch fort), is a great place to watch rough Indian Ocean, and sunset. When the sun goes down, many of the local people come out with their kite. Seeing the kites with a colourful sunset was quite impressive. Walking on the fort became a daily ritual during my stay in Galle.
