There’s no better time than now to plan your end of the year surf holiday. Plenty of time to take care of every last detail and make sure your overseas sojourn is a raging success.
Now, all you have to do is decide on your dream destination…
If you’re looking for a wintertime getaway, the stretch of coast between Hikkaduwa and Mirissa in the south-west of the country is the obvious choice. It’s loaded with waves: reefs, beach breaks, and a few nice point-breaks. No matter your skill level, there’s a spot to suit you.
On land, venture a few kilometres inland to see more animal species than you can shake a stick at… Another unforgettable sight: Sri Lanka’s famous stilt fishermen. Each one perched atop a long pole with a crossbar stuck in the seabed along the shore. There’s also great dolphin and whale watching.
We’ve picked our favourite resorts in Hikkaduwa, Welligama and Mirissa to convince you to come discover Sri Lanka for yourself. All three offer beautiful, beachfront locations, amazing ocean views, fantastic pools, and quality waves walking distance from your room:
In Hikkaduwa, the Aditya Resort and Spa is a luxury, boutique hotel that will cater to your every need. It is lavishly decorated and located on a secluded, sandy slice of paradise. Perfect for couples as serious about surfing as they are about relaxing in a serene environment!
The 5-star Cape Welligama is only a short drive from some of the best reef breaks in the region. The hotel is designed to look like a lovely, traditional Sri Lankan village. It offers an unpretentious, family friendly atmosphere, but with fine dining, personal butler service and an in-house spa to boot!
Number One Mirissa is an intimate, boutique hotel set on a stunning half an acre of terraced gardens. Each luxuriously furnished room with all modern amenities features a spectacular view of the beautiful bay of Mirissa. The internationally trained chef and bar staff will make sure you’re well fed and your thirst is quenched day and night!
