Situated south of Colombo, Tangalle is one of the nicest spots along the south coast, particularly if you want somewhere to find a place to laze around and soak up the sun. Tangalle’s series of bays are a modern attraction, while there are private beaches and coves along the coast. The resort township of Tangalle, lying in the Deep South with nothing between it and Antarctica has some of the most beautiful un-crowded beaches in the island from Pallikkudawa to the famous pigeon bay with a small rocky islet off to a side to which one could walk over, where on one side a reef guards a rock pool with a myriad of marine life. The surf breaks here with the sound of gunfire at times and a little further off is the fisheries harbour of Tangalle where deep sea fishing vessels anchor.
