Brief Garden is located 10 km (6 miles) from Bentota. Famous spots among tourists for taking photos are the staircases and the blue door.

Instagram tip: for taking a photo in front of the door, wear something yellow or white, because it will perfectly incorporate the blue from the door and the green from the trees and bushes.

3. Lighthouse at the Galle Dutch Fort

It is located about 50 km (31miles) South from Bentota. The centre of this location is the lighthouse, so try taking a photo with it in the background.

Instagram tip: Avoid taking photos in the middle of the day, because this is when the lighting is at it’s softest. Take photos around sunset or sunrise.

4. Palm trees on the Moragalla Beach
