Weligama, which only 20 minutes away from Ahangama is celebrated for the fantastic surf the waves have to offer. Whether it's your first time or you're looking to test your skills as a veteran, the southern coast has the perfect waves for you.
When in doubt, surf it out!
There are several surf schools within a 500m radius in Weligama, so there is no shortage of lessons for those wanting to learn to surf. There is one Beach Break, the Weligama Beach Break (best for beginners), while the Reef breaks are Kabalana, Midigama, Ram's Point, Plantation Point, and Two Secrets Point.
Weligama Bay Surf Point
The town's beach break is a hotspot for surfing and is tailor-made for beginners. The secondary swell that rolls in at chest height is perfect for those taking on lessons or just beginning to take on the waves on their own. Meanwhile, more experienced riders can enjoy double overheads and rather quick rides out back, even when it's a more chill swell on the secondary.
