Surfing in Sri Lanka – Best beach Villas in Sri Lanka for surfing lovers.
Our selection of best beach villas in Sri Lanka for surfers.
Sri Lanka has recently become an increasingly popular destination for those who love surfing. The waves in Sri Lanka are appealing for the more experienced surfers, but you can also find great spots if you are relatively new to the sport.
Whether you are a professional surfer, hitting the internationally-recognised waves of Arugam Bay, or you are an intermediate or beginner who is looking for some fun and a bit of a workout, Sri Lanka is the perfect destination for enjoying the surf whatever the time of year, due to its warm tropical waters.
Another great advantage of this island is that it has two main seasons and you can surf almost all year round: from December to April try the golden, palm-fringed beaches of the South Coast of Sri Lanka, while from June to late September you can discover great surf location such as Arugam Bay, the Pottuvil Point and Whisky Point. These are all located on the Eastern Coast of Sri Lanka, near the Pottuvil/Arugam Bay area.
