The land of coconuts, cinnamon, tea, and coffee, Sri Lanka is a tropical paradise and the most reliable surfing destination in the Indian Ocean. It’s also incredibly affordable and family-friendly, with a surf culture and infrastructure that just keep on growing.

Thanks to its remarkable density and variety of waves, Sri Lanka is one of the best places in the world to learn to surf and improve your skills. At the same time, advanced surfers will find the more challenging reefs and points relatively empty.

Whether you’re a beginner or already have some experience, you’d like to combine surf with yoga or solely focus on your wave riding skills, there’s a surf camp for you!

In need of some recommendations? Check out these handpicked surf camps in Sri Lanka you can join any time of the year.

Travel update: As of January 21, 2021, Sri Lanka is open to foreign tourists.

Travelers must present a negative PCR before boarding the flight (taken within 96 hours of departure), take a test upon arrival in the country, and test again seven days later. Those who wish to stay longer than seven days will have to take a third test the following week. 

For the first 14 days after arriving in the country, international visitors must remain within a designated “travel bubble”, which will keep them separated from the local population. They will stay in government-approved “safe & secure” hotels, with access to their facilities​. During the 14-day “travel bubble”, visitors are permitted to explore select tourism sites, including popular attractions, safaris, and national parks.​ After 14 days, visitors can mingle with the local communities. 

Note: BookSurfCamps offers a flexible cancellation policy. Should you not be able to travel as scheduled, we’d be happy to help you alter your booking with the same organizer or a different organizer.
