Sri Lanka Surf Camp

The newly built Surf Villa is located in the lush green area of Cape Weligama in Weligama Bay

Tucked away from the noisy main road but still on the Ocean side you will find the newly built Villa in the Cape of Weligama, a safe and well protected area lifted above sea level. The Villa is very near the beach but yet still surrounded by a jungle green fauna. It is strategically located in the Weligama Bay. Close to one of the most beautiful surf beaches in the area known as “Jungle Beach”.

The Surf Villa is a short walk to the nearest surf spots, the reef breaks: Jungle Beach & Turtle Bay and just 500 meters away from the huge sandy surf beginners and longboard beach break in Weligama Bay. Within a 10 min drive from our Villa you are able to reach the most important surf spots like Rams, Lazy left – Mirissa point and more. Because the Surf Villa is centrally located between all the surf spots, we are able to go each to direction without any long drives.

The Surf Villa in Weligama Bay enjoys quality European-standard A.C accommodations with only private bathrooms. The Villa offers currently 6 A/C Rooms, a yoga shala, open living room with a garden, swimming pool 11 x 5 meters.

Discover, explore, relax, surf and eat is what we do in Sri Lanka! Our in-house chefs prepare daily freshly made breakfast, lunch and dinner! The unique Sri Lanka cuisine is full of flavour and we will offer also for vegetarians options without any problems. We will serve a mix of European food and the local tasty cuisine.

The villa will soon feel like your new home, secure and comfy luxury safe haven.

About Weligama

Sri Lanka is a beach break perfect for all surf levels

Sri Lanka is a beautiful country, bathed in warm Indian Ocean current, and with nearly 1600 kilometres of palm-fringed coastline, Sri Lanka is an incredible surf destination.

Positioned just south of India in the Indian Ocean you’ll find a land of magnificent landscapes featuring lagoons, fertile wetlands, mysterious forests, mountains, rivers and cascading waterfalls. Despite its small size it has the highest biodiversity density in all of Asia.

About the surf

Sri Lanka can be divided into two seasons, November to April and May to October.

During the months of November to April, the best area of the country to be surfing is the south-west coastline which is where The Surf Villa is located. During these months you will have dry and sunny weather conditions on the south coast. Water temperatures will be around 25°C-30°C (80°C-90°F), which gives you a great opportunity to surf in Sri Lanka without a wetsuit. The combination of head-high glassy waves, long periods, and offshore winds creates the setting for perfect surf conditions for anyone from beginners to advanced surfers.
