    Take the short, scenic walk to the local surf spot

    From the Surf Retreat to the 2-km long Weligama Beach is 125 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 a few minutes TukTuk ride either way you have countless 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.

    Rams - fast, hollow wave in Midigama

    The perfect beginner, advanced and longboarder beachbreak! Long waves that break beautifully into a bay with no rocks and no currents. With a little luck it is possible to surf 400 meter long, solid waves here. There are many peaks with right and left hander waves. This spot runs best at Southwest Swell. The waves can be surfed well even at small size and the spot holds up to 5 feet. When the other spots in the area vanished you'll have a good chance of catching nice waves in the sheltered bay of Weligama.

    In the neighboring town of Midigama is the most famous spot in the area: Rams! It's a short, barreling right-hander wave with little space to the reef. Only suitable for advanced surfers.

    Lazy Left
    Also in the neighboring village you will find Lazy Left - a long, gentle wave where you can paddle out relatively easily. With more size this wave can get pretty solid. Perfect to collect first Reefbreak experiences! Suitable for intermediate and advanced surfers.

    In Midigama this reefbreak offers great waves for intermediate and advanced surfers and breaks at all tides. Mostly the waves break to the right but sometimes there are also some left handers - depending on the swell and the sand which is flushed into the reef. Best in the morning with the early off-shore. Mostly you do not have crowds here. The break starts at 2 feet and can hold a lot of size.

    In Midigama, next to Plantations, breaks Coconuts . A fast left, steep wave. You have to get out fast enough before the wave breaks on the exposed reef. Not many people are surfing here as the spot is not visible from the street. Just go into the water at Plantations and paddle to the peak of Coconuts.

    This A-Frame Break in Ahangama works pretty much all year round. For the same reason it is often crowded. Kabalana is just a short tuk tuk ride from the camp.

    Sunset yoga on the beach in Sri lanka

    Yoga and surfing complement each other perfectly. You strengthen muscles that are vital to surfing as well as improving your range of motion in important areas like your shoulders. Yoga also improves balance and gets you to take control of your breathing. All of which is vital to every element of surfing from the take-off, to the paddle out. If you choose the Surf, Yoga, Eat, Sleep package you will get 5 surf sessions and 4 yoga sessions per week.

    Inland trips
    If you head inland from Surf Retreat Sri Lanka you’ll soon be in the lush tropical forest of the island. Here you can explore rice fields, tea plantations or the famous a snake farm. If you go to the snake farm make sure you ask the owner about one of the many times he was bitten and refused to take the anti-venom that he produces at the farm without repercussions. There is also a traditional fabric factory that makes handmade sarongs and other clothes and blankets that is well worth a look. You can either get a guide to take you to these places or jump in a TukTuk and go on your own.

    Surf Towns

Mirissa is one of the more popular spots in the area that has plenty of beach bars and restaurants, full moon and beach parties as well as a great reef break just away from town to keep you busy all day and all night.

    Day Trip to Galle

    Online Booking




    Colombo Airport (CMB)

    We offer an extra service where we will find you the cheapest available flight, then contact you with the final offer. Flights to Colombo are the only option when travelling to Sri Lanka. When the flights are booked we can organise an airport transfer to come and meet you at the airport, and take you to Surf Retreat Sri Lanka.

    For those of you who would rather find and book flights yourself we recommend Skyscanner which will give you a good overview of the available flights and where they depart from. You can fly to Colombo (CMB) with Emirates, Qatar and Etihad.

    If you have any questions feel free to contact us.


    The team from Surf Retreat Sri Lanka provide a shuttle service to pick you up from Colombo Airport for 95€ per person, per trip. Please send your flight details directly to the camp manager after booking. Contact details are on your Pure Surf Camp invoice.


    You can also get a taxi once you arrive. There’s plenty of taxis at the airport, and a trip to Surf Retreat Sri Lanka should cost around 10,000 – 12,000 LKR (65 – 75€) depending on your price handling skills. It takes in between 3 – 4 hours depending on traffic.

    Public Transport

    By far the cheapest option is Public Transport but it’s also the option that takes the longest. Best to get a TukTuk to the bus stop by the airport. Then get on the bus to Colombo Central Train Station which is called Colombo Fort. The bus cost 150 LKR (1€) the trip can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Once you’re at the Train Station catch the train to Weligama. A second-class ticket costs 220 LKR (1.5€). The last train weekdays depart at 18:05, and weekends at 15:50, here you have the full Train Schedule. Once you arrive at Weligama take a TukTuk to the camp. The trip in total can take up to 7 hours.

    Rental Car

    Renting a car in Sri Lanka can be a great way to get around, they are very cheap and a great way to undertake your own early morning surf trips. The best priced rental cars are available at Sunny Cars. Getting a rental car will allow you to spontaneously explore the coastline on your own accord, just don't forget your roof racks. Sri Lanka is however a pretty busy place out on the roads and public transport, taxis and TukTuks are very affordable.


    There are 2 options for driving, you can take the coastal toll-free road, which takes 4 hours or the toll road which takes 2.5.

    The toll road option is as follows: From Colombo Airport, you get on the expressway called the Southern Expy / E01, heading south and follow it for 126 kilometres. Exit at B465 and head towards Weligama – Kananke. After 900 meters turn left at Weligama Motors onto Buhari Masjid Road then after 600 meters turn left again after the Weligama Beach House onto Matara Road / AH 43. 500 meters down the road you turn left at Para Kade and then 70 meters down the raod you have arrived.
