Matt Shears


Surf Camp Sri Lanka is one of the first surf camps on the whole island and they have been running for 15 years. They are located in a little town called Whelingoda.

The nearest town is Ahangamma, which is about 5 minutes up the road in a Tuk Tuk. In Ahangamma, you will find many shops, banks etc. The largest town is Gale, which is a pretty cool town to visit on an afternoon as there are lots to see and some great shopping opportunities,. This town is 20 minutes away in a Tuk Tuk or less in a bus.

Weligama, Matara, Mirisa, and Unawatuna are all close to Whelingoda, just far enough away however to forget about the downsides of tourism.

Whelingoda is a little village where you will never worry about crowds. The camp is directly in front of the beach, so every morning you may enjoy going for a walk to the beach with no driving around involved.

Spend your time in front of the ocean, enjoy the breeze, beautiful sunsets, and surf all you want during your stay. Go into a full relax-mode and take in all the beauty this off-road destination has to offer you and enjoy Surf Camp Sri Lanka's golden triangle: room, restaurant, and beach.
