We became quite friendly with our Tuk Tuk driver, we used his services everyday & near the end of out time in Sri Lanka he invited us back to his house to meet his family.
Unfortunately his wife could not speak english, but she was lovely & welcoming as were the children
Wander along the beach early in the morning. There are some shops on the beach but one can easily take a tuktuk to the shops in the village. There also other excursions possible like a boat trip, visit of a turtle hatchery etc.
Fondest memory: the sunsets
Our trip was very special as we got married in Eden Resort & Spa, the staff made the day perfect for us, and we would recommend getting married here.
The wedding ceremony was amazing.
Favorite thing: At the hotel, there were 2 iguanas, about 2-3 feet long that would wander around the grounds and come very close if you stay still. They fascinate me.
