Sri Lanka is a small island with a highway and train line running very close to the ocean. For this reason, most hotels and resorts sit right on the highway and the vibe is often ruined by constant traffic noise and the hustle and bustle of commuters and every day hawkers trying to sell you goods or services. True to the name Elsewhere Surf Camps, they are away from all chaos in one of the very few exclusive areas on the beach side of the highway.
The area is quiet and unknown to many tourists which will give you an authentic Sri Lankan experience. Surrounded by a friendly local community and an abundance of wildlife such as monkeys, peacocks, monitor lizards, and squirrels, it is like having a jungle safari right in your back garden. Not only that but all customers are VIPs at a bar or restaurant within stumbling distance that is getting rave reviews and is now considered the best place to party in Sri Lanka.
