The Fortress Resort & Spa
Koggala is a strange strip of abandoned holiday resorts, 5 star hotels and ATM machines. The beaches are definitely not crowded while the Koggala River and Koggala Lake attract many nature lovers. Koggala is a wide stretched village on Sri Lanka‘s South Coast with beautiful beaches and some of the best surf spots on the island.
Many little shops are located close by, which are perfect for your daily needs. Little beach restaurants offer fresh seafood dishes and provide excellent views overlooking the picturesque Bay. Some of the interesting places to visit in Koggala are Buddhist hermitages which are situated on a couple of islets on the Koggala Lake. The hermitages may be visited with prior permission. Koggala is generally recommended for a visit to the Martin Wickramasinghe Folk Art Museum or for a ride to one of the islands on the Lake. There is, however, a lot more to Koggala. You can ride on a catamaran around the Lake with a local villager who may be willing to take you fishing upon request. You could also take a bicycle ride (or Tuk-tuk) along the dirt tracks of the villages around the perimeter of the Lake to discover some of the wonderful vegetation and animal life (snakes, monitor lizards, birds) in the area. Koggala beach is a beautiful stretch of clear water and soft golden sand, which is perfect for long walks, while you can also reach the next bays of Ahangama and Midigama.
