We Escape is situated in the south of the island in Weligama, 148 kilometers away from Colombo and 173 kilometers away from the Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB). If the scenic coastline road is taken, the journey will last four hours and 15 minutes while the highway will take approximately two and a half hours. The land area of the hotel and its surroundings amass to two acres. Weligama Beach in Sri Lanka is so special as it's a surfer’s paradise. This little strip of beach got a lot of surf breaks packed for all types of surfers from the "Kooks" to the "Soul Surfers".

In Sinhalese, Weligama translates to "sandy village" and this is perfect because the beach has soft powdery sand that will make you want to lie down, sunbathe, or just simply relax. It was at the Weligama Beach that the world-famous photographer Steve Mccurry captured his internationally acclaimed photograph of Stilt Fishermen in 1995. Even today, you can see these fishermen perched above the Indian Ocean on wooden stilts, reeling in the catch. We Escape is one of the best places to experience this gorgeous beach as it’s only just across the street.
