The beaches of Medaketiya and Medilla are perfect for swimming and relaxation purposes. These beaches located towards the east of the town are relatively uncrowded like many other beaches in Tangalle. These two beaches are located on a land which is covered by the ocean on one side and mangroves on the other. The long stretch of golden sand and the deep blue water makes this beach a tranquil and peaceful place that is good for relaxation. The waves can be considerably strong at times. In spite of this, the beach of Medaketiya is one of the best spots in Tangalle for swimming. From this beach you will get a fine view of the ocean, fishing boats and the harbor.
The pristine beach of Medilla is also uncluttered by tourists and is a great place to relax in and enjoy the sun and sand while getting a suntan. The golden sandy shores and the palm trees create a breathtaking picture and is another place that is suitable for swimming in Tangalle.
