Weligama

Luxury Holidays to Weligama

With a name that translates to ‘sandy village’, it is unsurprising that Weligama offers some of the best beaches on Sri Lanka’s southern coast. Blending a sleepy fishing town with a vibrant beach resort, Weligama offers a tantalising mix of culture and relaxation. 

It is also one of the most reliable places for surfing on the island with calm waters ideal for beginners and a whole host of different water sports that will keep everyone busy. 

Weligama is also perfect for culture buffs. Check out the ancient 6th century carving of Bodhisattva hewn into the rock; take home a handmade lace handicraft made in the Weligama area; or watch the fascinating stilt fisherman plying their trade along the beach front. What’s more, Galle, Mirissa and a plethora of national parks, tea plantations and sites of interest are just a short drive away making it a perfect jumping off point for exploring Sri Lanka’s pristine south coast.

To cap it all off, the waterfront in Weligama is lined with a host of fabulous dining options offering the freshest seafood caught only a short distance away.
