This simple, radiant beach is a peaceful getaway from the bustle of modern living. Relax and unwind on the beach as you hear the waves gently crash against the shore. Thalpe Natural pool gives you a relatively more private experience where you can take in these aesthetic visuals uninterrupted by the banter and presence of crowds. These rock pools have come into existence over time being carved out of coral reefs. This mesmerising unspoiled beach is home to a diverse marine life. One may find men perched riskily on stilts anchored into the sand dangling fishing lines over the water. This is the traditional art of stilt fishing practised by Sri Lankan fisherfolk. The dedication and skill of these fishermen make for a captivating sight.

Japanese Peace Pagoda
Just like the other Peace Pagodas around the world, The Japanese Peace Pagoda is a result of the efforts taken by the Japanese Buddhist Monk, Nichidatsu Fujii, to create structures that would symbolise peace. Also known as “Sama Ceitya,” this Japanese Peace Pagoda rests in the Unawatuna Rainforests at the Bay of Galle. Despite being a Peace Pagoda, it is one of the relatively secret places in Sri Lanka. This round building stands to exemplify harmony between people of all backgrounds. It was created during a time when the nation was fighting a crippling civil war. It is a truly underrated landmark in Sri Lanka, considering how it's relevant in today’s trying times.
