First to step up to the ancient Dutch fort of Galle Within the fort, Fifty Lighthouse Street is the ideal starting point from which to see all that Galle has to offer. Stroll along the ramparts and take in the imposing buildings like the Galle Lighthouse, the Galle Clocktower, and the Groote Kerk, all of which have been preserved in their former splendor. Only a native from within the fort would know the details of a Galle Fort Walking Tour with us. Our walking tour takes you into the backstreets of this famous fort, where you`ll see adorable buildings, museums, historic sites, and more while learning all kinds of fascinating facts about the Galle Dutch Fort. Next, visit a turtle hatchery. The hatchery and rescue facility look after five different types of turtles. These species include the Green Turtle, Hawksbill Turtle, Leatherback Turtle, and Olive Ridley Turtle. Modern water tanks are included in the facilities at the sea turtle hatchery and rescue center, which also provides care for adult turtle species that have been pulled from the water after suffering injuries. Finally, we visit the mangroves on the Madu River boat safari. Near Galle and at Balapitiya, adjacent to Sri Lanka`s southern coastal region, is where you`ll find the Madu River, which is ideal for boat safaris. Madu River is a 900-hectare wetland estuary, of which 770 hectares are submerged in water and home to 64 islands. One of the few wetlands in Sri Lanka to have a virgin mangrove forest, this complex wetland ecosystem is a world heritage site protected by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. The boat ride is a good way to have a closer look at it. At the end of the day, we finish the tour.
