EKA Beach is a collection of cosy, affordable pavilions that sit on a palm-fringed golden beach on the fringes of Thalpe, looking outward to the palm-fringed Galle Coast. The beach has stunning views of the Rhumassala headland and is flanked by an endless series of arced beaches. EKA features a white arced beach, magical sunsets, and great surf and sea life. You could relax with drinks and food at the outdoor terraced café, or take to the beach. Staff are friendly without being obtrusive and well trained. You may be lucky enough to see a local turtle family bobbing in the waves whilst tucking into your breakfast on the terrace or during your morning beach walk.

Why We Like It
An affordable option on the Galle Coast close to the sea and far from the crowds.
EKA Beach can be found on the edge of Galle's upmarket beach settlement of Thalpe. About 2.5 hours from Colombo's international airport and 15 minutes from Galle Fort. If you are then heading from the coast into the hills, we offer competitive rates on a daily sea plane between Koggala and Hatton.
