The superb Galu Beach fronting the Indian Ocean is only seven minutes easy walk from Galu Inn. An out-of-this-world white sandy beach is waiting for you, with crystal clear blue water of a pleasant temperature. Just think about being able to walk down to the beach and taking a swim in the ocean all year around. Take a trip to the reef to see the fantastic and vibrant life of the coral, just a couple of hundred metres away from the beach. Wake up in the morning, walk down to the beach, and pick up a variety of fresh seafood from the fisherman’s catch.
Guests can enjoy a round of golf at Leisure Lodge’s 18-hole golf course, only 10 minutes’ drive away from Galu Beach Estate. Some of the 5 Star hotels close to the golf course also have casinos where you can try your luck at the roulette and black jack tables.
