Lazing on the Southern coast of Sri Lanka, Ahangama is a peaceful small town made famous by one of the most unique sights in the world – Stilt fishing; a traditional method practised only in this region of the island.

All along the coast you will see fishermen balanced precariously on cross poles waiting for a bite on their fishing lines. The stretches of perfect palm fringed beaches here are ideal for indulging in rest and relaxation, and the warm ocean just perfect for some water sport too. Local attractions include exquisite lace making and ancient temples which you can explore without heading too far away.
