    On this trip you’ll also stop to visit the famous Global Vipassana Pagoda and explore the tall Uttan lighthouse, even climbing all the way to the top for an unparalleled view of the Arabian Sea. The peaceful, well maintained roads of the island have very light traffic, making them an ideal cycling choice.
