Pasikuada to mankerni to pasikuda to kandyToday is most travelled day. We have booking today for sea diving at mankerni beach at giman free resort. We reached there at 7 am. We took learning classes and paper work from lady named Roya. We did practice in pool. And then finally the time came where we have to take boat and go way away from beach inside sea. I was very excited as it was my first time for diving and i am not a swimmer. Our boat stopped as per some gps location somewhat about 2-3 kms away from beach. And finally time came to dive in sea. I took deep breath and jumped into sea like i saw many time in discovery channel. Suddenly i was into deep sea with nothing to feel below my foot. And i was just breathing from my equipment. After fumbling in sea my head come out of sea. I hold boat as like never before. After i got comfortable with situation i took my first dive. I reached bottom of sea. It was just awesome feeling. After this ultimate experience we took bus to go to kandy. Its a mountain city. Well located between the mountains. You can find pizza-hut domino z and many Indian foods restaurant. Its a cultural place for srilankans. There is beautiful lake between the city. We got little expensive accommodation today for 4000 slr. But room was very good.

One beach you need to visit on your next trip to Maui is Pailoa Bay, a black sand beach on the famed Road to Hana. With its bright blue water and contrasting black pebbled sand, you could easily spend all day relaxing under the Hawaiian sun. Plus, there are sea caves and lava tubes to explore nearby! Saying this beach is ridiculously remarkable is an understatement! 4) Jessica from A Passion and A Passport: Pailoa Bay, Hawaii, USA

Galle located at the southwestern coast of Srilanka is not only known for its famous Dutch fortress but also some of the awesome beaches around it. From Hatton take the bus to Colombo and alight a few stops ahead at Kaduwela from where you can get a bus to Galle that runs through the southern expressway and hardly takes an hour and a half to reach Galle. For stay, there are plenty of guesthouses and a few hostels inside the fort to choose from. Once you have checked in your guesthouse you can spend the evening walking around the fort and admiring its rich heritage. Though I read online that you cant get alcohol inside the fort, there are quite a few restaurants cafes inside that serves beer and other beverages and the most noticeable being Taphouse by R&R located in the hospital street nearby the lighthouse.
