Worship & Architecture - A short trip from The Last House and Coco Tangalla are the Mulkirigala Caves boasting a remarkable temple and monastery carved out of a large and sheer rock formation in the surrounding.

The Katargama temple is worshipped by both the Buddhist and Hindu with festivities of chants and music taking place every day and thousands visiting for centuries. Also nearby, fans of Bawa’s architecture should visit Ruhuna University and Laughton House.

Wildlife & Nature - If your thing is wildlife, you can head to the Yala National Park on safari which is amongst the world’s highest concentration of leopards in Yala, or enjoy the company of large herds of elephants at Udawalawe reserve.

Whale watching Sri Lanka has become a key part of any visit to the island and trips can be organized from Mirissa only 45 minutes away from Coco Tangalla and The Last House, also for your chance to go dolphin watching Sri Lanka. Visit the Turtle hatchery Sri Lanka by night, to be enthralled as turtles arrive to lay their eggs, for incredible turtle watching in Sri Lanka.

With a large proportion of over 100 species being indigenous, the Bandula Bird Sanctuary is also a must see.

Surfing - Get your adrenaline rush by surfing it up in Hiriketiya Bay, a relatively untouched cove that boasts surf break all year and about ten minutes from our Tangalle hotels.

Further away is Mirissa, also popular amongst the surfers, for a bohemian vibe and little eateries.
