"This might just be the best place on earth..."

Make no mistake, Elsewhere is surf utopia. If you’re considering going anywhere else, you’re silly. Amazing instructors (both surf and yoga) chilled out vibe and if you’re up for it some epic parties. The only problem is you will never want to leave.

Loved the staff and the food, very cosy homelike atmosphere and had a lot of fun with everyone. Felt accepted as I am.

Cheers to the guys at Elsewhere for being legends and making sure we were well looked after. There was always a wave close by to wet the gills, whether it be high performance wave or a party wave session on the camp long-boards. We look forward to visiting in the future for some epic table tennis battles.

Where do I even start? Marc and Mark were our hosts during our week at elsewhere, and they were beyond incredible! Being our first surf spot in Sri Lanka, we were a bit nervous and didn't really know where to find the waves, but the boys took care of that, showed us some amazing remote surf spots. Surfing perfect waves with no one around, what more can you ask for? Well, apparently that was just one of the great things about elsewhere. The food was to die for and sitting at home writing about it, makes me crave it. I would come back just for the dahl! Location! Elsewhere is located just out of Weligama, so you don't get the hustle of the town, which is so nice, and you still have little shops right next to the camp! We walked into town most days to get coconuts and it took us 10 minutes! Marc and Mark have a great local team, everyone they work with are such beautiful people, and they made our stay unforgettable. I cant recommend this place enough! Going to Sri Lanka without going here should be a crime! Thanks for the good times guys, I'll be back soon!

Amazing spots for surfing, great staff. Good food included. take some surf lessons, it will be worth it! Fun time in shared areas, meet new people. Safe place. Breakfast is amazing, homemade food (breakfast and dinner included) Also, interesting parties at Tiki's place. Perfect to surf (beginners to advanced), to meet people, and to meet the culture in Sri Lanka.

We had a delightful 10 days visit in Elsewhere Surf Camps just before the season was about to kick-in. It's really a very nice time to visit a developing Weligama since its not to hot and not to busy but still lots of thongs to do and enough people around so you don't get bored. The staff is relaxed, helpful, and friendly, so use their knowledge and advise and you'll do just great, whatever your interest are. We lived in a single room but the bunk-beds in the dorm is awesome, well planned and hand built, by the best dorms I have seen around the globe! The surf camp is a few minutes away from Weligama (surf for all levels) in a tuk tuk or you can visit the secluded Jungle Beach a few minutes walk away (surf for the experienced one). Short trips around Weligama you have the more busy and more touristic Melissa beach, the old fortress in Galle, good local restaurants, the worlds second biggest blow hole in Hummanaya, tea plantations, snake farms, whale watching and much more! Book now!
