Galle is one of Sri Lanka's most popular city. This beachside paradise in the southwest of the island is one of the most well-known in the entire country because of its historical significance. It served as the island's main port until the arrival of the Portuguese in the 16th century. While traveling, look out for fishermen selling their wares along the side of the road and take in the stunning green and turquoise beaches that line it. Tell our chauffeur if you wish to bury your toes in the sand. There are two possibilities regarding the origin of Galle's current name.
