Over View

Matara preserves a few Dutch colonial buildings and an atmospheric old fort area which has much of the old charm but none of the tourists of Galle - well worth a couple of hours if you're on the vicinity. A few kilometres away, the attractively low-key beachside suburb of Polhena, with its small cluster of guest houses, quiet strip of beach and good snorkelling, offers a convenient escape from the hustle and bustle of the town itself.
