Weligama surfing

Weligama surf is known as the best beginner surf on the Sri Lanka south coast. Come here to hit the waves with fantastic surf schools. And, don’t worry, there are nearby reefs and point breaks to graduate to aplenty.

Where is Weligama?

Weligama is the main town of Weligama Bay, a huge opening on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Roughly midway between the two towns of Galle and Matara, you’ll find it on the busy coast road linking the two (known, simply, as the Matara Road). Colombo, the capital of the island, and the main airport where you’re likely to arrive, are both about two hours’ drive to the north.
