about jetwing lighthouse, galle

On the south-west coast of Sri Lanka, Jetwing Lighthouse enjoys a spectacular location, nestled on a small hillock right on the beach. Just before the centre of the ancient Dutch outpost, now Galle city, it is in the perfect spot for activities, such as whale watching and sight-seeing alike.

Designed using teak and granite by the late Geoffrey Bawa, Sri Lanka’s iconic architect, this beach boutique features a tranquil spa, swimming pools and a balcony or terrace for every room.
