Weligama, Sri Lanka

A vibrant but laidback beach village, home to gorgeous beaches and ancient spirituality, on the jewel that is Sri Lanka


Weligama Bay

Sri Lanka's vibey hotspot

Lazy swaying palms, perfect beaches, and weekend train rides winding through misty mountains — Weligama is iconic. Nestled into the coast of Sri Lanka, this low-key gem is a sunkissed dreamworld, especially for the wannabe wave-rider. 

And if surfing isn’t quite your thing, there are tons of other ways to feel the magic of this peaceful yet vibrant pocket of the world. Strap on a snorkel for some killer diving sessions, get horizontal on the beach or discover some of the incredible eateries, cafes, and boutiques that bring this place to life. We don’t want to get too cocky, but dare we say Weligama Bay could be your new fave destination?

Weligama Highlights

Just a few reasons you'll fall for this destination​


Scenic Train Rides

Spend a day — or weekend — winding through majestic mountains, lush green tea plantations, fertile valleys, and dense jungle — all from the cart of an old-fashioned railway train. For this activity, it's all about the journey. It's a spectacular way to see the Sri Lankan countryside, and it's gaining popularity. So best to get involved before it becomes tourist trap!


Practice Ayurvedic

If yoga prepares one for liberation and enlightenment, Ayurveda can be thought of as a supplementing practice, that uses ancient traditions to maintain a healthy mind and body. The goal is to optimize one's physical and mental being to pursue life goals. Weligama is a mecca for this 5000+ year old ritual, and offers the real deal.


Weligama Wave riding

If there was one definitive, universal reason to make your way to Weligama, it's the surf. Conditions are almost always perfect which makes it the ideal beginners wave. Even if you're not looking to become the next Kelly Slater, but want to learn a new skill, or at least say you're able to get up on a wave, Weligama is the place you're looking for.


mirissa Street Art

Just 15 min away from Weligama, is Mirissa — a small town known for its murals, graffiti, and street art. From three dimenional pieces that climb off the wall, to brightly colored peacocks and sealife, you can spend a wonderful afternoon wandering through the streets, hunting down the artistic treasures that decorate local hostels and guesthouses.


Galle Fort

Once a trading port for exotic spices and goods, the old town of Galle is now open to explore, some 200 years later. Enter the walled remains of the fortress within, first built by the colonial Portuguese, to read stories of romance and immerse yourself in what is now part of the Sri Lankan history.


Whale & Dolphin Watching

Wake up at the crack of dawn to witness the playful side of aquatic life in Weligama. The surrounding waters are known to present ideal conditions for whales and dolphins. In total, five kinds of whales (blue, bryde’s, sperm, pilot and killer whale) and four kinds of dolphins (spinner, bottle nose, stripped, and Risso’s dolphin) are known to be regulars in the area.
