    Where the sea turtles reign

    December 15, 2016 in Sri Lanka ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    In the early morning, I headed out on a scooter to snorkel and see the giant sea turtles in the shallow waters at Polhena. There were also plenty of colorful fish, but the best part was when a local diver showed me 2 giant sea turtles, one about 1.30 meters long. I followed it and basically swam right above it for almost 20 minutes, I was so flashed afterwards. Such a cool experience.

    I then headed east to see the fishing town of Tangalle. On the way, I took a detour to see a blowhole and instead ended up at the local harbor, where I spoke to the fishermen and got a tour of the fishing boats, on which they go out for 4 weeks at a time to go fishing.

    Two German travelers had recommended a beach which I decided to check out and it turned out to be the most beautiful place right by a large lagoon. I spent the rest of my day here and played some frisbee with a group of locals.

    I ended the day with practicing some guitar at beach back the guest house.

    Home sweet home

    Also sollte es mal irgendwen von euch nach Sri Lanka verschlagen, müsst ihr in dieses Hotel!! Wir fühlen uns pudelwohl und können trotz der rauen Wellen hier im Süden baden gehen. Ein vorgelagertes Riff hat hier einen Natural Pool geschaffen. Traumhaft...😎
