It's worth visiting this place if you are traveling in the southern part of Sri Lanka.
This place is considered as the southern most point of Sri Lanka. Light house and the surrounding are well maintained. Beach is so beautiful too.

Talking Fingers SPA Hiriketiya exceeded all my expectations. The serene atmosphere, coupled with the stunning view, made for a truly magical experience. The staff went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and satisfaction. The massage therapists are truly gifted - I left feeling like a new person.

This historic lighthouse used stone quarried from Cornwall in England' West Country plus Scottish stone.

It was modernised in 2000 with GPS.

It was worth a 10 minute visit.

Lovely little spot!

The most southern point in Sri Lanka, a cute little post box with a sign explaining.

The lighthouse is very pretty, surrounded by bright blue water and lovely picnic spot.

The Dondra Head Lighthouse is far superior in size and location than the Galle lighthouse. One can drive right up to the parking area, which is only about 100 meters from the lighthouse and walk the rest of the way. There are generally no crowds, so you can enjoy a much more relaxed time and the views from the area surrounding the lighthouse are also superior to the Galle. Not sure that I would go out of my way to visit here...but if you're in the area, it's definitely worth a quick look.

... But as we were passing from Dickwella to Hikkaduwa we got the driver to stop here.

15 minutes is all you need to wonder around and get a few snaps. You can’t go up the lighthouse but to walk around and right up to it is free.

A nice spot, at the southern most tip of Sri Lanka.

The well preserved lighthouse makes for a great photo subject.

You can relax and watch the sea crashing in, our sit on the rocks on the opposite side and take in a quiet little cove with local fishermen catch crabs and lagoon prawns.
