Culture Trip’s top tips for the perfect holiday in the ‘surfer’s paradise’ of Sri Lanka
Travel blog Culture Trip takes a look at Sri Lanka and concludes that “with sun-kissed shores bordered by turquoise waters, the island is no doubt a surfer’s paradise”.
From Arugam Bay on the east coast to Hikkaduwa in the south, “surfers can find waves almost anywhere if they are attentive and willing to listen to the knowledge of a local or two”.
It notes that “if you are completely new to surfing, Weligama is the place to go, while Hikkaduwa and Mirissa offer reef breaks that are also popular with newbies and professionals alike.
“Hikkaduwa is at the very heart of the surfing community on the south coast and is a wonderful place to hang out if you are looking for a beach holiday.”
And if you don’t do crowds, “Sri Lanka is full of secret spots where a surfer can practice their sport in peace, so do some research and find out which places work best for you”.
Meanwhile, “Sri Lanka has many accommodation options to choose from, both in and around the surfing areas, with prices ranging from $10 to $200 per night; it just depends on what you are looking for in terms of accommodation.
“Whether you are simply searching for a place to crash for the night or seeking the complete royal treatment of indulgent spa sessions and plenty of pampering, the options are many.”
