Famous For Its Beautiful Beach & Stilt Fishermen
Weligama - means ' Sandy Village' - is situated in Matara district, 143 km from Colombo or 27 km from Galle with its sandy sweep bay. It is indeed a very fishing town with less travellers visit.
A few meters off the shore is an islet known as Taprobane where a dream house of French Count de Maunay was built on. Weligama is also where you will see the famous stilt fishermen.
