Feb 03, 2020 BY Luke Rees

Looking for a luxurious surfing adventure to a different destination? Does the idea of a Sri Lanka surf camp that includes yoga and food float your boat (or board!)? Then a Cape Weligama surfing holiday might be just what you are searching for.

Solid Surf House started out in Bali and Morocco. Over five years they have built a reputation for great value but high quality surf trips.

In Bali and Morocco they offer everything from short breaks to a 12 week surf instructor course. They run fun surf camps that ensure their guests progress and enjoy themselves.

Sri Lanka is a stunning country, with friendly people and amazing cuisine. The beaches are beautiful, the jungles full of life and – importantly for surfers – the Indian Ocean swells are reliable.

As a testament to the quality of the waves the World Surf League has made a few visits to Sri Lanka. Most recently in 2019. You can expect water temperatures of 27ºC (81ºF) all year in this tropical paradise.

The best of the Sri Lanka surf scene is found in and around Cape Weligama. Located at the very foot of the country it is the perfect base for a Sri Lanka surf camp.

The nearest reef breaks of Jungle Beach & Turtle Bay are just a short walk from the villa. Plus the sandy bottomed beginner beach and longboard area are just a 500m stroll.

Just 10 minutes drive – transport included – from the Villa will take you to Rams, Lazy Left and Mirissa point plus other spots. A Cape Weligama surfing holiday with Solid Surf House puts you in great accommodation right in the centre of the best surfing in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka safety

The Easter 2019 terrorist attacks in the capital Colombo were terrible and it is understandable for you to be concerned about safety. But following arrests and increased security, since June 2019 the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has deemed Sri Lanka safe to travel to for holidays.

Of course check out the latest FCO advice. For example, at the time of writing they suggests you remain vigilant, avoid crowds and big public spaces.

But Sri Lanka has been welcoming visitors again since June 2019. And you can still expect to experience the infamously friendly and laid back Sri Lankan style.

Prices start from €449 per person for 7 nights. Including surf gear, lessons, guiding, breakfast, yoga and five dinners (all diets catered for) plus lots more. Find out more at: www.solidsurfhouse.com/srilanka
