Tangalla is the gateway to the wide-open spaces and wide-open beaches of southeast Sri Lanka. It’s the last town of any size before Hambantota and has some old world charm. But you’re really here to find your perfect beach and revel in it. The name of the town in Sinhala means “projected rock”, a reference to the rocks which form the coastline in the town area, which contrasts with the sandy beach of the surrounding areas. Another rationale is that the name is derived from ran-gala or “golden rock”, which relates to a local legend that a holy man once ate a meal there and the rock was turned to gold. Tangalle is a regionally important fishing port and a center of tourism. In the city center there is an old Dutch fort which is used as a prison today.
