En route Visit the turtle Hatchery at Kosgoda. TURTLE HATCHERY Projects have been launched to conserve the population of turtles that are reaching extinction, and such projects are found along the southern coast of Sri Lanka where turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. The turtle digs a hole on the Beach, Lays hers eggs and covers it with sand where it is supposed to incubate by the heat of the sun. What often happens is, the eggs are dug out by fisherman and sold to people who consume them. But now the eggs are bought up by the conservation projects and hatched the Natural way in enclosed areas and the two day old babies are let into the sea at night time so that the Birds don’t have a chance of picking them up. This procedure offers them a better chance of survival and sustains the endangered species.

It was the most important seaport way back in history, where the sea faring merchants arrived to trade and barter. This is also where the Portuguese first set foot to Sri Lankan soil in the year 1505 and later built a fortress, which was captured and fortified by the Dutch. VISIT THE GALLE FORTRESS The fortress is one of the best preserved in the island. A visit to the fortress and to watch the sunset from the rampart is an experience unforgettable.
