Sea Turtle Hatchery – Mahamodara

Here, one will be able to catch a glimpse of the rescue work carried out to treat turtles who have nearly lost their lives due to the fishing industry.

Dalawella Beach

This is a brilliant place if you’d love to try out snorkelling – a small natural pool makes it a safe and wonderful experience. It’s a great place to spot turtles too.

Duwili Ella Falls

This stunning waterfall can be found near the Sinharaja forest entrance from the Lankagama side, so it’s only a short distance away if you feel like walking into the forest. A small natural pool is available for visitors here; close to this, there’s a small food shack from where you can enjoy rotti with Katta sambol – a delicious dish of the local cuisine.
