SOUTHERN BEACH TOUR
Tangalle’s beaches spring for several kilometers either side of Tangalle town, a busy but typical provincial Centre with a sandy selection of shops and cafés plus the obligatory clocktower and anarchistic bus station. The most developed section of coast, though still very somnolent, is to the east of town, along Medaketiya and Medilla beaches, a long, straight stretch of golden sand lined with a string of guesthouses opened in hope of a flood of tourists who have yet to arrive. Beyond Medilla, around 4km northeast of Tangalla town, the coastline tapers to little more than a sandspit at idyllic Kapuhenwala beach in Marakolliya, backed by the mangrove-fringed Rekawa lagoon.
The most outstanding section of Tangalle coastline can be originate a couple of kilometers further west at the village of Goyambokka, with a superb stony promontory flanked by two stunning beaches – to the west of the headland, Godellawela Beach (or “Silent Beach”, as it’s popularly known) is an absolute picture.
