How to get there
If you are coming from Galle, it is easy to find the Coconut tree hill. From the main road you can access the hill through a small narrow road. Special note, the road is very narrow. Only smaller vehicles like a car, tuk tuk and bikes can drive in that. But if you have a bigger vehicle, you can park it on the main road and walk to the place. It’s very near to the main road.
After parking your vehicle, you must climb up the hill for around 3 to 5 minutes. Once you reach the top you will be able to see a stunning view of the bay through the palms.
Once I was there, I got the vibes of Uluwatu temple beach in Bali. It was stunning.
Most Instagrammable place in Sri lanka
Top of the hill is perfect place to hangout with your loved one and take best shots for Insta. You can see stunning pictures on instragram when you search with #coconuttreehill keyword. The place is extremely busy in sunset. Families, couples, and many more come to see the beauty.
If you want to avoid the crowd, go in the morning. It is peaceful in the morning.
