Nestled along Sri Lanka’s southern coastline, Koggala is an idyllic town which promises everything from cultural attractions to the beachside fun. Here are the best things to do and see while on a visit.
Sri Lanka has been famous for its fresh seafood, and Koggala happens to be a great place to try heaps of it. The beach stretch is lined with many restaurants and you are guaranteed to be spoilt for choice!

Visit the Martin Wickramasinghe folk museum complex
The reverently restored home of Martin Wickramasinghe, one of the most celebrated authors in the country, dates back 200 years. A visit will offer a fascinating glimpse into the island’s rich history. Centrally located, the complex can be easily reached from many surrounding Koggala hotels including the likes of South Lake.
Sunbath at Koggala Beach
Possibly one of the most serene and clean beaches on the island, the dreamy stretch of white sand and swaying palm trees is the ideal spot for sunbathing or for long romantic sunset strolls.
Explore the Koggala Lake
Join a boat tour and spend a relaxing afternoon drifting down Koggala Lake, a vast freshwater lagoon. One will get to observe the local way of life, prawn farms, a diverse range of wildlife and several islets such as Cinnamon and Temple islands.
