Just half an hour's drive from Galle, along majestic coconut groves, brings you to the beautiful Weligama Bay.
The term Weligama literally means "sandy village" which refers to the area's sandy sweep bay.
The famous German scientist philosopher Ernst Haekel who in 1882 set up a marine zoological laboratory in Weligama, called this secluded haven "Bella Gemma" the lovely gem and the pearl of Taprobane (another name for Sri Lanka)!
