We booked a full package for a week including yoga, surfing and a tent! It was our first week on Sri Lanka and it was a difficult one to move on after as we straight away fell in love with this place. It´s energy is so positive and relaxed. Ben, Till and the sri lankan family including "Mama" really give you the feeling you are coming to a home away from home. The tents are made for nature lovers. You can hear the monkeys and little squirrels, the birds and the wind. Really important fact: Extremely comfortable beds! And everything is surrounded by plants and palmtrees...just beautiful. Surfspots around the camp are available for every level. Within walking distance you´ll find "Sticks" and a beachbreak, which are both (depending on conditions) suitable for beginner to intermediate to pro. Within a 10 min TukTuk ride you´ll reach a bunch of different lefts, rights or beachbreaks. Ahangama for us was the perfect place to be. It isn´t too touristic but yet you get everywhere within 10-40 min by TukTuk or just 10 min walk into Ahangama village. We didn´t miss anything.

Yoga was very delightful and a perfect match with the surfing. Also the offered massages are great! ou can just totally be yourself at this camp, play music, draw, chill, read a book, sleep, play in the pool, play pool...so many options but you not gonna get bothered-all up to you. We got taught some Singhalese, hangdrum, drawing... Last but not least: food was insanely delicious!!! Breakfast is the best we could find on the island! I could go on like this for a while, but instead I just recommend go there yourself and check it out! We´ll be back for sure! Thank you Camp Poe family!!!

The best place I stayed while in Sri Lanka:) Ben and till and all the local staff are legends. Poe had a really good vibe going on with a fun mix of travellers. Food was great and it was central to many surf spots.
