It’s surfing season in Sri Lanka. Here’s where to catch a wave…


South of Weligama, this hidden gem is one of Sri Lanka’s best kept secrets. Lush palm trees enhance the scenic landscape as you work your way to perfecting that reef break. If you’re lucky, you may even spot a migrating blue whale or get to play with a pod of friendly dolphins.


Consistent waves makes this idyllic spot a must-do for surfers of all skill levels. Beginners will appreciate the way waves form and peel away smoothly towards the shore. Come prepared though, as the local Hikkaduwa surfers have a flair for competition – get set to see some moves. 

3. Unawatuna Beach

Turn a day of surfing fun into a family affair at this kid-friendly beach. Ride the waves with your little ones in tow as they splash away in the water. Want to know where the good swells are? Simply ask the locals. They’re always very happy to point out the perfect spots.
