Relax in the hammock, or play table tennis with an ocean view

Surf House Sri Lanka consists of 2 buildings, one of which is directly next to Weligama bay, and the other is 100 meters away from the beach. Both camps have an amazing atmosphere, friendly crew, are comfortable and get you the best waves regardless if you’re just beginning or already super advanced.

  • Beachfront Surf House located directly on the beach and budget conscious option in Weligama
  • Pool, garden and rooftop bar with hammocks, table tennis and cold drinks
  • 2 surf sessions available per day
  • Maximum of 4 students per surf coach
  • Yoga, movie nights, pool games, boat trips, beach parties
  • Warm water, tropical weather and amazing surf – the perfect winter escape

Both locations at Surf House Sri Lanka are neat the beach at Weligama, which happens to be the best spot to learn to surf on the southwestern coast of Sri Lanka. There are 2 accommodation options available: The Beachfront Surf House, located right on the water’s edge, and Surf House Weligama, which is in Weligama and is 100 meters away from the ocean. Regardless of where you, stay both houses are 1 big community meaning you can use all the communal spaces and take part in all the activities available. At the beachfront property, you have the pool, but both houses have a rooftop bar.

To get to the surf courses you head to the beach right in front of the Beach House and you are there. The bay is renowned for its long rides and constant surf. The waves a little closer to shore are perfect to learn on and once you get a little better you can tackle some of the bigger, more powerful peaks up and down the beach. There is a morning and evening surf session 6 days a week, and each class has a maximum ratio of 4 students to 1 coach. If you don’t want to surf that much, the town of Weligama is about 5 minutes away via TukTuk, the beach is 30 seconds away to chill, and the pool is always a great place to spend relaxing afternoons.

Amazing beach only meters away

Weligama
From Surf House Sri Lanka to the 2-km long Weligama Beach is either 10, or 100 meters. This beach is the best spot to learn to surf on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka, but also provides great waves a little further out for more advanced surfers. If you’re looking to try a few different spots you are in luck because within 15 minutes TukTuk ride either way you have around 20 beach, reef and point breaks.

The township of Weligama is also nearby and once there you can buy souvenirs, check out the local surf shops, try the cafes or head down to the beachside bars and grab a drink. The best way to get around is renting a scooter, or taking a TukTuk.

All within an hour car ride from the camp you have Mirissa, a great little surfer town with amazing beachside parties, rice fields, a snake farm, sea turtle sanctuary, tea plantations and tea factories.

Local Tips

Tea plantation Sri Lanka Ceylon
Sri Lanka Rottie
1 / 2
The famous Sri Lankan tea plantations

Tea Plantations
Tea is part of the Sri Lankan identity. A trip into the mountainous inland regions to check out the plantations and factories is not just for tea connoisseurs, but perfect for anybody who wants to experience a little bit of Sri Lankan culture. The team can organise a trip from Weligama to the plantation, then inside the factory. Afterwards you can try some of the different tea variations accompanied by some local cake.

Coconut Rotties
Sri Lankan cuisine is amazing, the curries, the fresh fish and the dal are what most people think of when they arrive. But don’t miss out on Coconut Rotties. It’s essentially Coconut fried bread with a filling, or something to dip it in, and well worth spending a few rupees on.
