    Weligama beach is large so it rarely feels too crowded. There's plenty of space on the beach itself, and in the water. There are no rocks or reefs either so its relatively safe for surfing. The only problem is the litter and local water pollution. After a day of swimming my shorts are brown from all the dirt in the water. If you go swimming, you'll feel plastic moving around near your feet (especially after heavy rains). There is next to no underwater visibility. So for swimming or snorkelling, you just need to get a Tuk Tuk to one of the many other nice beaches in the area. But for beginner or intermediate surfers its the best spot in the area.

    It is a statue of a King who died of a skin rash but a noble being, therefore his statue was erected on a ancient rock near a Bo-tree and up to today people visit to worship.

    Gihan, Danu and especially Janaka were all exceptional. They were friendly, genuine and helpful and make valuable suggestions to our itinerary. They made an already amazing holiday, a truly unforgettable one. We can't thank you enough.

    Had the best time learning how to surf. We had 4 kids all try surfing for the first time and all were successful riding the waves like pros. Weligama Bay is the perfect spot for the beach relaxing and surfing all hours of the day. Had a great time.

    Pradeep had a great team teaching us and was great to work with.

    Used their services on 2 occasions while in Sri Lanka!
    Both Dinidu taking us from Kandy to Tangalle and Chirath from Tangalle to Colombo were awesome and went above and beyond for us as travelers.

    So friendly and knowledgeable. We would recommend them to any travelers visiting Sri Lanka!

    I had a 1.5 hour lesson with Ashan. The booking process with Manju was smooth and the lesson was a great time. It was my first go at surfing! Ashan is a lovely, patient and helpful instructor who gives great feedback to help you catch those waves and stay on the board longer. I briefly met Manju, the owner, who was very friendly and came to introduce himself. I highly recommend booking your surfing needs here! Every staff member was very friendly and welcoming. It has a great atmosphere as well as a great surfing experiencing.

    Our two boys had two lessons a day for a week, mainly with Madu and Shashi, who were great. Really friendly, great teaching, they were really sad when we left. Would recommend.

    Greetings from London. Pradeep gave my friends and I the most unforgettable and special experience in the South of Sri Lanka. We explored lake koggala and visited Temple Island, Cinnamon Island and the Herbal gardens. He had such a great sense of humour and lots of knowledge and wisdom to impart
    If you’re in Sri Lanka you must travel with Pradeep

    Karu’s family is so nice and special that makes you want to come back to learn more about their humble, amazing culture. They show us their garden, the plants, the spices and give us tips how to cook the Sri Lankan food. It is a very fun and cozy experience because we are indeed at their own home as we were ever part of the family. And the food is delicious!
