1-bedroom Villas in Tangalle, South Coast, Sri Lanka

Tangalle is a sleepy fishing port in the island’s deep south where villagers go about their daily chores with an unhurried charm, stopping frequently to chat with relatives and friends. A holiday in Tangalle must include exploring its main attraction, the many beaches that surround the town which are some of the island’s most picturesque, tranquil and unspoilt spots. Reached along narrow tracks from the main road and hidden by rocky headlands which ensure that they remain undiscovered, many of these beaches such as Seenimodera, Mawella and Nilwala are flanked by beautiful patches of jungle and overhanging palms. Coves, rocky outcrops and bursting blowholes dramatise them while the rolling surf of the deep blue ocean provides an endless melody to accompany the picture-postcard scene.

Inland from Tangalle, the scene is very rural. While the beaches are scattered with colourful fishing catamarans, the plains inland are carpeted with vast paddy fields where farmers are hard at work tending to their golden crop. Only lush jungle, palm tree islands, lotus-filled lakes and a few rocky outcrops vary the landscape. There are many things to do in Tangalle, especially for those who like to explore history and culture, with breathtaking cave temples such as Mulkirigala hidden in its midst.

Tangalle has a supermarket, a handful of banks and a fresh produce market. Eating out is a low-key affair here; the region’s delectable ocean cuisine is typically enjoyed in a rustic restaurant overlooking the beach.

Kurumba House

Kurumba House

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Tangalle

What a great beachside bolthole; simple, unfussy and most importantly, very relaxed. Minimal clothing, stacks of books and an iPod are all you’re ever going to need to bring with you on a visit to Kurumba House, if that. Its idyllic seaside situation was quiet and peaceful. The good-natured staff team immediately enveloped us on arrival meaning that for most of our stay our feet were nowhere near the ground, though this was due in large part to the surplus of comfy seating and the fact that we could gaze out at the ocean even whilst lying in bed. Tekla cooked enthusiastically (provisions are on guest account) though if you fancy cooking for yourself then the staff will happily go out shopping on your behalf if you furnish them with a list. Tangalle is a very laid back beach resort with few places to go out and eat – there’s only one restaurant along Mawella Beach – but this matches the property’s nature perfectly. Kurumba has very few facilities (no swimming pool, TVs or music systems) however with a beach to explore, a sea to enjoy and a beautiful climate to soak up this is the type of place you visit to escape the distractions of everyday life.
