Sri Lanka

A destination of suspense and surprise. A cultural explosion and real adventure for the traveller at heart. Sri Lanka is a sensory sensation destination that will leave you bursting with excitement and a new favorite mark on your world map! With golden sand beaches that are fairly untouched, Sri Lanka is a great surfing haven and a perfect place to relax and retreat!  It is the real deal – real people – real food – real adventure and real SURF. 

The surfing season on the East coast of Sri Lanka (Arugam Bay way) begins in May and goes through to the end of October.  The surfing season on the West Coast of Sri Lanka (Hikkaduwa way) begins around November and continues through to the end of April.  The good news, particularly for learning surfers, is that the South Coast of Sri Lanka (East & West of Weligama) gets swell all year round.

We have previously confessed that we sat on the fence for a while to see what would happen with the surf scene in Sri Lanka.  We had heard about over-populating at peak holiday times with the increase in learn to surf schools, so we went and had a good and proper look for ourselves. And we are delighted to report that there are some real gems to be experienced.  However, due to slow travel times and vast sight-seeing opportunities across the country, we do not recommend travelling all that way for the surf alone.  For this reason, we are offering tailor-made itineraries for each region/season, which can incorporate surfing, cultural sites and game parks. Contact World Surfaris with your preferred dates and areas of interest and we will design a trip to suit!  Sri Lanka offers so much more than surf and is a very affordable family holiday.  And always remember that Sri Lanka is only an hour's flight to the Maldives.....
