Day 6: There are motor bike rentals available within the fort from where you can rent a bike for the day to go explore the beaches around Galle. The roads outside the city are in generally good condition but be aware of the harsh bus and truck drivers in the road especially while negotiating the curves. The most famous beaches nearby Galle are Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna which are known for their coral reefs and water sport activities. Hikkaduwa is located some 20 kms north of Galle and good for surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving. I have posted my experience of scuba diving in Hikkaduwa in the link here.

Head back to Colombo, for your flight back home.What to packSri Lanka is unpredictable when it comes to its rainfall. So be sure to pack an umbrella – a sturdy one at that, and some light rain gear. Also, pack sunscreen and insect repellents. Carry good, durable helmets before embarking on the trip.VisaYou can apply for a 30-day visa online, which is valid for a month from the date of arrival, but an extension can be obtained for up to six months. The processing takes up to two days and costs ₹986. You can also get a visa on arrival at the Bandaranaike International Airport, but this will be a relatively long and tedious process. This costs a fee of ₹1,315.

About Hikkaduwa

As we start our journey from Colombo Fort railway station to Hikkadua, the happening beach destination in Sri Lanka, we could not but blame our luck for not being able to take the train which was unbearably late and as it arrived there was hardly any space to put our foot onto it. Taking a taxi to Hikkadua although not as beautiful option as train but was the best option in this situation.One might confuse Hikkadua for Goa as it seemed to be a mini-version of it.. Narrow lane with both sides dotted with shops selling souvenior and swim-suits, roads filled with foriegn tourists and road-side eateries, Beautiful clean beaches and beach-shacks with trance music playing in the back-ground.
