Great historic place. Get lots of tourist. Great location and view. Old structures and light house. Good hotel and restaurant also there but bit pricey. Smaller beach also there. Clean water and nice breeze. Love to be there again.

Its spread over a very wide area. There is a lighthouse, armoury as well as beach within its confines. The fort houses numerous shops and its a delight to walk through the streets. The architecture reminds of Dutch towns. We found some souvenirs at excellent rates. The guy having an ice cream parlour is really friendly.

Highly recommend this place if you are visiting the southern coast of Sri Lanka. The place has an amazing vibe. Quaint streets, colorful shops cafes and restaurants - all of which pay so much attention to their interiors and ambience. There is something for everyone. When we went it was peaceful and quiet with hardoy any tourists around which added to the charm.
