      Nice beach hotel

      We arrived in the quiet season and don't think there was anyone else staying there. The restaurant was also closed. so I can't comment on that. The rooms were large and were really nice. Mosquito net over the bed was more than adequate and for once was free of dust and holes. Good location and right on the beach. The staff are also very attentive. I would stay here again.

      Biggest, cheapest, badest, bestest rooms on the beach

      We scoured the beach, up and down for a relatively cheap A/c room, ensuite too. This place had the best sized rooms, all with four poster beds and the staff / family are really friendly, unlike a few other places nearby.

      As it is off-peak, the restaurant was closed so can't comment on the food, but the menu had the standard fare of Sri Lankan and Western. The beachfront here is also where the sea is at it's calmest, although it is about 1-2kms from town, so no ATMs nearby!

      Good stay

      We enjoyed our stay at Neelas. It is low season so it is a bit like a deserted beach but the staff were really friendly.
      Watch out for the guys giving massages on the beach. They look pretty seedy to me but I saw some girls having one which they seemed to enjoy?
      Unfortunately they didn't have curry and rice so we can't really say the food was that spectacular, next door they had string hoppers for breaky which we opted for.
      Bathrooms could do with an update and the mozzies are pretty annoying so be warned. We had to ask for a mozzie net as our room didn't have one.
      All in all, a good place to stay.

There are billboards on the way in and out of town, which must be at least 15 feet high, and carry a full length shot of his highness with his hands raised in a cheery greeting, there are other pictures of him kissing small children and assisting the deserving poor. On the way back from Udawalawe we passed through his home village and have ...

I recognised that when arriving in the afternoon they have all been out in their cots for a sleep and then given milk, which they drink lying down. Well this little dude didn't get anything so I began to ask them for milk. I don't know weather try we're ignoring me or just well...ignoring me so I asks every single one of the workers, they then started having a conversation about it until one ...

      ... during their occupation of Sri Lanka. People still live inside the fort and of course there are lots of facilities for tourists. Galle is also famous for its hand made lace, which was also introduced by the Dutch. I would have loved to buy some, but showed great self control. The bus ride itself was memorable for being terrifying. I have read that all bus drivers in Sri Lanka are good, because the bad ones soon die. We didn't see any major accidents with buses, but I'm sure they ...

      As our time in Sri Lanka is coming to an end we have moved to Mirissa where we hope to go and see whales, but only if the wind drops! I would not relish a boat trip at present a there is a very strong wind. The hotel, Paradise Beach is on an isolated stretch of beach right by the sea. Surprisingly there is a small ...

      Having a whale of a time

      ... slowed down and we started our search for the whales. It felt really eerie to me as everyone was so quiet and all you could hear was the lapping of the water. I was half expecting something to leap out of the water and attack us, just like in movies. Maybe 10 mins later, one of the guides said 10 o’clock and sure enough in that direction there was a 50m fin whale blowing his spout. They have strict rules about not getting too close ...
