There is frankly not much more in Galle than the fortifications and some old town streets to wonder around...but definitely very different than the rest on the island.

Though this is a charming little place but they can close pretty early. I was here in March and it was very hot during the day time. It cooled down a bit in evening but soon after that everything (minus restaurants) start to get closed.

Galle was my favourite place of all in Sri Lanka. It is a beautiful and magical place, with the lighthouse, the views of the sea, the beach and the trees. Well worth visiting and staying overnight in the old town. There is a good selection of restaurants and cafes and it is an interesting place to walk around.
