Known as the best beginner surf along the Southern coast of Sri Lanka, Weligama is located approximately 144 km away from the commercial hub of Colombo and is also home to some of the best surf schools in the island. Weligama Bay measures 3.2 km from point to point which makes it the perfect cleft in the coast for refracting swells coming straight in from the ocean. Breaks that make it through hit the main beach area of Weligama in a series of peaks making it a beginner’s paradise for the surfers who come from faraway lands. While the main surf spots are hidden inside the Weligama Bay, there are more reefs and points in Midigama and SK Town which are a short drive away. Weligama is quite laid back compared to Mirissa and Arugam Bay but there are plenty of hotels, hostels, cafes, restaurants and rental areas for surfing equipment that are available while Lakpura offers you services of an English speaking instructor for convenience.
