As you stroll on the wall of the beautiful ford, you will find the lighthouse. It is well maintained. Bring you back to colonial times

“Lovely afternoon spent exploring the ramparts.”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Spend an afternoon exploring the ramparts around the old town of Galle. Great place to explore as is the rest of the old town.

“Just another lighthouse”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

The lighthouse is on Utrecht Bastion. The old lighthouse was buitl in 1848 and burnt down in 1936. The lantern was at 92 ft above water level. The new lighthouse that you see now was built in 1940.

Lighthouse Street or ‘‘Zeeburgstraat’ ‘Middelpuntstraat’ was named after the lighthouse.

To the left of the lighthouse there is a small beach that local visitors swim in. It could get crowded during weekend.
