As loathe as I am to admit it – we are a bit travel weary now and are in need of a rest. So here we are – Tangalle, by the sea, a rough one at that. This was another area pretty much devastated by the 2004 tsunami but has rebuilt itself with a plethora of beachside accommodation available. Not having made a booking in advance, we were offered a family cabana by the beach. Pretty much this is a large openish hut with ...
