Sigiriya to TrincomaleeOn 3rd of august we started in morning around 7:30 am towards trinco. You have to go to dambulla and from there you can get bus for trinco. We reached at lunch time. Again take bus for cheap and comfortable travel. The beach is ultimate with no waves and so clean and with blue turquoise water with white sand. This is my favorite beach in srilanka. We got accommodation for 2500 slr for 3 people. This was a homestay with beach on backyard. Trinco is big town you can get good veg food here. You can even get currency exchange at jewelry shops. Exchange rate depends on your negotiation power. In evening we took tuk tuk to go to marble beach. This also a good beach but i found trinco beach very good so we decided to go back to trinco and take a first dip into srilanka beach. Water is very clean with awesome awesome sunset.

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.
