Most Romantic Things To Do In Galle Fort

Aug 27, 2019
Galle Fort

One of the reasons why it’s so easy to fall in love with Galle Fort itself is that this old town resembles a quiet Italian town. Cobblestoned alleys lined with cafes and bistros, and the slow rhythm of soft melodies often merged with aromatic fragrances ring through the air contribute to this romantic setting. Much like Italy, love lingers in the air within the ancient ramparts of the fort and attracts love birds from around the globe. Here are the most romantic things to do in Galle Fort with your partner.

Stroll Through the Streets

Galle’s historic streets are ideal for a stroll with your loved one. Pop into a boutique store for a bit of souvenir shopping or for some gelato to escape the tropical humidity. Visit the Maritime Museum and Groote Kerk and admire the domineering structures of the elegant lighthouse and the bricked clocktower. The streets of Galle Fort are vibrantly different at day and night; both offering a completely different experience altogether. At night, dim streetlights illuminate the cobblestoned pathways making it the ideal place to enjoy a romantic walk under a starry night.

Spend the Day on a Secret Beach

The island sun can take its toll on you around mid-day, especially after a few hours of strolling through the ancient ramparts. Head behind the pristine, towering lighthouse and walk to the quiet strip of hidden beach below. Dip your toes or yourself completely, to cool off from the tropical heat! Quench your thirst with a king coconut from the local vendor, usually found under the shade of a tree.

Sunset Over the Rampart

If you’ve seen an island sunset, you’ll know that each time the sun dips into the horizon, the sky is painted in varying shades of blue and red – and yet, each time, the sunset is mesmerizingly unique. The best place to watch the sunset is from the ramparts of the fort near the Galle Lighthouse. Sit on the wall with your legs dangling high over the crashing blue waves and wait for the most spectacular sunset as the sky turns into a beautiful canvas, that would even make Van Gogh envious.

Wine & Dine

There’s nothing quite as romantic as enjoying a glass of wine in a chic, elegant setting that reminds you of the boot-shaped country! Pick the most tantalizing dish from our menu and ask our chef for the perfect wine to pair your dish with. If you can’t decide, why not sample a few types or brands until you find the best one? Using secret family recipes, each item on the AQUA Forte menu has been carefully prepared using fresh ingredients, promising you a journey through Italy in every bite.
