Amazing aerial view of Weligama fishing village the latest Sri Lanka post on Gourmet Traveller


Gourmet Traveller magazine’s latest Sri Lanka post features a visit to Weligama by acclaimed UK photographer Tom Parker, including a terrific aerial shot of this southern fishing village.

He writes: “Weligama is a fishing village on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, about 45 minutes’ drive east of Galle. In the mornings and evenings when the boats come in, little market stores lining the road behind the beach sell the freshest tuna, seer and snapper.

“Sri Lanka is a magical place. I first visited in 1999, and moved there to live and work in 2004, a few months before the Boxing Day tsunami. I’ve spent close to three years in the country, and return a couple of times a year. To me it feels like the Garden of Eden.”

A previous post featured the luxurious Cape Weligama hotel, 40 villas and suites on five hectares of beachfront on the south coast, 30 minutes’ drive east of Galle and about two hours from Colombo on new highways.

It notes: “Cape Weligama is part of an ambitious plan to create a trail of small luxury resorts around the island, says Malik Fernando, the managing director of Resplendent Ceylon, Dilmah’s hospitality arm. His father, Merrill J Fernando, is the founder of the single-origin tea company.”
