Feast your eyes and tantalize your taste buds to the preparation and presentation of authentic Sri Lankan cuisine made just for you by our Villager Women. To enlighten you on the historical aspect of Sri Lankan cuisine, it must be understood that life on this island was mainly based on agriculture and Buddhist beliefs. Whilst the men engaged in farming, the women folk had overall overview of household activities including cooking.
Due to closely bound family ties the elder women folk passed on what they knew to their daughters and this way of teaching created specialized authentic cuisine, which sometimes became endemic to that part of the country. Due to the influence of Buddhist beliefs and Ayurvedic traditions, Sri Lankan meals were mainly made without meats. Also the ingredients were selected due to their medicinal properties and cooked or prepared so that the healing powers within were not lost. This contributed to a very strong and healthy society, which at one time was able to rise to the pinnacle of its agricultural based society. In modern times due to the extremities of day to day activities and their pressures, people are rediscovering the path to well being through the consumption of traditional cuisine, food cooked to appease both the sight and the taste while safeguarding and healing the mind and body. Sri Lankan food is considered as hot or mildly hot.
Kosgoda is famous for its sea turtle conservation project operated by the Wild Life Protection Society of Sri Lanka. It was established in 1988 to protect Sri Lanka‘s turtles from extinction. Since then it has released about 3.5 million baby turtles into the wild.
The hatchery pays fishermen for eggs that they collect at night along the long sandy beach. Although October to April is the main laying season, some eggs (mostly green turtles) can be found at Kosgoda throughout the year.
The hatchery buries the eggs in sand, and when they hatch around 50 days later the baby turtles are released into the sea at night. Only about one in 1,000 turtles survives to maturity.

Sri Lanka is a great place for surfing and has been a popular surf destination since the 1970s. The main attraction is Arugam Bay on the remote East Coast, one of the world‘s 10 best surf points. The Arugam Bay surfing season runs from July / August and dedicated surfers, who know these waves well, return each year to experience the thrilling waves and the relatively secluded beaches. Arugam Bay was devastated by the 2004 Tsunami but it has responded resiliently and several characterful beach side guesthouses provide comfortable accommodation here.
The south and west coast is best between December and March. During the monsoon period from April/May to October the surf is uninviting. Hikkaduwa, less than half an hour north of Galle, is the most famous surf destination on the west coast and has lots of cheap guesthouses, beach restaurants and fun nightlife. Lesser-known bays to the south, such as Ahangama, have a sprinkling of uplifting guesthouses and uncrowded beaches.
