Within walking distance:

On the beach: Maharaja, Blue Lagoon, Sashika and Muthumuni Beach Restaurant.

On Galle Road: Ayesha Pub & Restaurant, Riverdale and Lagoon Garden

Short tuk tuk ride:

Aluthgama: Ganga Garden

Bentota: Golden Grill, Lucullus, Susanthas, Crocodile and Green Shadow

All have both western and Sri Lanka food (rice & curries).

For places with local food only, see my list in this thread:


Yes, you can go by train from Aluthgama to Galle. You can find timetables here:http://www.railway.gov.lk/index.php

3 day tour depends on where you want to go. Can be either Cultural Triangle (Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and Dambulla) and Kandy (Tooth Temple, Cultural Show, Botanical Gardens and Elephant Orphanage) or Kandy and Hill Country (tea plantations, tea factory, waterfalls).

Count on around LKR 7,000/day for hiring a car/van with guide/driver, LKR 6,000/night for double room with dinner an breakfast in midrange hotels plus entrance fees.
