Galle Lighthouse Tours

star-5
1 Review
Galle Lighthouse
Galle Lighthouse is located within the historic Galle Fort in Sri Lanka and is one of just 14 remaining lighthouses in the country. In fact, this is Sri Lanka's oldest light station and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The original structure was built in 1848, but was destroyed in a fire in the 1930s. The current lighthouse was built 100 meters away from the original site upon ramparts standing six meters above ground level. The light station itself is just over 26 meters tall, giving it a panoramic view of the harbour.

The Galle Fort lighthouse overlooks a small beach, and there are a number of shops and restaurants nearby. The area provides some fantastic views and photo opportunities, although unfortunately visitors are unable to enter the lighthouse to climb up it.

Practical Info

The Galle Lighthouse can be found on the southern coast of the island in the bay of Galle. Galle Fort can be explored either independently or as part of a guided walking tour.
Address: Galle Fort, Rampart Street, Galle 80000, Sri Lanka
