Tangalle Dutch Fort Beach, located on the island’s south shore, is ideal for a serene and quiet holiday as it is located in a remote region away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Though the beaches and bays here are stunning, and the water is deep blue and beautiful, swimming at Tangalle Dutch Fort Beach is not recommended since the tides may be fairly rough and dangerous.

Tangalla’s Mangrove Beach is great for a day trip where you may kayak in the lagoon
