  • History in it's greatest form . Loved the walk around the lighthouse and fort . The prison underneath the fort was very unique. If you go to Galle it's definitely worth a visit . Views are breathtaking .

  • One of the greatest landmark in Galle Dutch Fort. You can spend some quality time here, specially with the sunset and sunrise. You can park vehicles close to lighthouse.

  • Visited: Sep 6, 2018. Nice spot to chill out in the evening. There are ample benches all along the fort where you can watch the sun go down. We saw couple of daredevil jumpers jump into the ocean from the ramparts near the light house. Expect some crowd in the evenings.

  • Beautiful place inside the galle fort. No access to the lighthouse but enjoyed.
