The fort experience was good as it is build near the sea and other side cricket ground view was nice. Lighthouse is an old one and nothing so different about it.

I Like lighthouses and I found interesting to SEE one in Sri Lanka. The area is a bit touristy but beautiful. Walk around and discover elements of the fortress like this or the Dutch church from 14th century. Very informative.
