Villa Mayurana - Galle Luxury Boutique Hotel Sri Lanka

South Coast Guide

Ever since the very early days of travel, Sri Lanka has been known as one of the worlds most beautiful and diverse exotic holiday destinations.
This is reflected in the many nicknames Sri Lanka has acquired over the centuries: Serendib (the origin of the word "serendipity"), Ceylon, Teardrop of India, Resplendent Isle, Island of Dharma, Pearl of the Indian Ocean; to name a few.

The South Coast of Sri Lanka was the first region to offer touristic facilities when the Hippies "discovered" Sri Lanka in the 1970's.
Starting initially in Bentota, visitors soon went further south to put Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna on the travellers' map. Today the whole of the South Coast is fully developed and offers some of Sri Lanka's finest beaches.
The crystal clear water is excellent for swimming, diving and surfing.
