Tangalle Bay (beach) — from Tangalle Bay to Weligama is a beautiful coastline with rugged rocks, sandy beaches and coconut groves. Tangalle is rated by Forbes Magazine as amongst Asia’s Best Beaches. In fact, it’s also a lovely place where local fishermen have adopted an almost unique way of fishing, located on the country’s picturesque south coast. As you approach Weligama along the coast road east from Galle, visitors will encounter Sri Lanka’s famous stilt fishermen. Each fisherman has a long pole with a crossbar that is stuck in the seabed close to the shore. The fishermen wade or swim out to these poles at times when the sea and fish are running in the right direction.
