to see the hand painted fishing boats, roadside fish market or the unique stilt fishermen. Explore the many Buddhist temples
including Yatagala which is at least 2,000 years old and lies hidden amongst a granite boulder outcrop above the surrounding rice
paddies. Visit a coastal tea or cinnamon plantation and luxuriate with a decadent lunch overlooking the local winding river or surf
the popular breaks which are 'just down the road' from Podi Gedara.
