How far is this resort from Colombo airport and can you please mention about things we can do around this resort if any?
they now have a new express way/dual carriageway from colombo to Galle. depending on time of day and how mad your driver is this will take 2.5 from colombo itself and nearer 3 from the airport.
tons to do in the area, turtle farm, cinnamon island, whale watching. surfing, snorkelling, shopping, galle fort, Marissa beach is stunning though 30/40 minutes away.
jungle beach has great snorkelling...and a great party on wednesday nights!
The resort is approx. 170 kms from Colombo airport. So, should you decide to take a taxi (which I will recommend), it will take you around 3 hours. The journey is amazing! The roads are superb and there is a rest area as well (where you could just get down for a quick round of coffee/snacks/etc).
Some of the things you could do around the resort are - 1. Visit Jungle Beach (dont miss this) 2. Visit the lighthouse and walk around Galle fort 3. Check out the Pagoda (very close to Jungle Beach) 4. Explore Unawatuna beach and the vast number of shacks!
I don't remember exactly, maybe around 3 hours.
I did cycling around with chameera cycling,
we went to walk inside the rain forrest Kanelia (far 2 hours and half and we spent 2 hours and half there, we also swam in the waterfall). you can go to the beach. you can visit galle. this is what I did in 3 days.just condider that the roads around are very bad and it takes time to go to places that look close.
