The charms of Mount Lavinia.

Mount Lavinia or Galkissa as known in Sinhalese holds an ethereal charm. A mere 12 Km from the Colombo Fort it shows the madness of the Galle road and  any main town of Sri Lanka but going away from the busy Galle Road the charm of the famous beach and the magic of the legend of the famous hotel draws in any visitor.

The beach and  surroundings draws a horde of people on public holidays and  on weekend evenings and  that is best to avoid if one prefers enjoying the beach in peace. But do go to the beach early morning when the crowds are less and you can enjoy the waves the fresh air and the ambiance in peace, though its not fully deserted.

One can behold spectacular sunsets
