Aaloka Villa

, Ranna
Price From :
US $ 450.00

Location

Aaloka is a three-bedroom beach villa set in the remote village of Ranna in the deep south. The villa fronts a secluded stretch of beach and is close to the Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary. This is a peaceful setting that is ideal for a relaxing holiday. Ranna is 12 Kms east of Tangalle and is 2.5 hours away from Galle. Yala National Park can also be accessed from here. If travelling directly from Colombo’s international airport, the fastest option would be to hop on board an Air Taxi which lands at Dickwella and thereafter, cover the 30 kms by road.

Excursions

Enjoy the beautiful cove like beaches of the south. Seenimodara near Tangalle is one of south coast’s best beaches. Mirissa Water Sports, based at the Mirissa harbour, offers several activities including whale watching, snorkeling, sailing, river trips, and sea kayaking.

Go bird watching to the Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary which is home to over 150 species of resident and migratory shore birds. Located nearby is Ussangoda, a 20-acre barren site of archeological interest edged by the sea. The unusual landscape here consisting of red earth with hardly any vegetation, has been studied by many an anthropologist and is linked to pre-historic times. Walk across Ussangoda’s headland and take in the panoramic sea views. Wildlife enthusiasts will also enjoy a jeep safari into Yala National Park, home to the elusive Leopard, herds of wild elephants and bear. Go on a night safari to Rekuwa, a small fishing village near Tangalle where a fascinating Marine Turtle Conservation project is helping to save this endangered species.

The ancient Mulkirigala temple situated about 30 minutes inland from Tangalle is another interesting morning’s excursion. This ancient temple is perched on an enormous boulder that rises up more than 200m high from the surrounding forest. Mulkirigala dates back almost 2,000 years when it was a site of a Buddhist monastery.
