Surfing in Sri Lanka: What to Expect

Sri Lanka is for you if:

Why choose Sri Lanka for your next surfing vacation?

With azure blue waters, lush tropical forests, rich cultural heritage and laid-back atmosphere, Sri Lanka is a tropical paradise. Thanks to the consistent swells from the Indian Ocean, its variety of waves and delicious, cheap food, Sri Lanka is a dream destination for beginner surfers and experienced wave hunters alike.

Is Sri Lanka a good place to learn to surf?

Regardless of the swell, most waves in Sri Lanka are gentle enough for beginners to learn to surf and for intermediate surfers to progress. There is a wide variety of mellow waves breaking over a sandy bottom to choose from at Weligama, Hikkaduwa and near Arugam Bay.

What are the best surf spots in Sri Lanka?

The south-west coast is home to some of the most popular surfing spots on the island: Gallé, Lazy Left (Midigama), Matara, North Jetty (Hikkaduwa), Unawatuna Bay, Weligama. On the south-east coast, Arugam Bay is the mecca of surfing in Sri Lanka, hosting annual international surfing competitions. Other excellent surf spots are: Okanda, Panama Rights, Pottuvil Point, Peanut Farm.

Can you really surf in Sri Lanka all year round?

There are two distinct surfing seasons on either side of the tropical island. Sri Lanka does not have an off-season – when the monsoon hits one coast of the country, the other is still dry. This means that you can surf quality waves in boardshorts all year round!
