If you're looking for that perfect spot to surf the waves and laze by a hammock, you've found it! Sri Lankan surf holidays are right up your alley as one of the all-time favorites among both locals and tourists. The island has a lot to offer the avid surfer, including long sandy beaches, fun point breaks and a great mix of accommodation to suit your budget. You can move away from the main thoroughfare and catch yourself surfing with nothing but sea turtles for company!
In 1965, Rusty Miller, the former US Champion, surfed Sri Lanka for the first time and described the island as a ‘Shangri-La’ for surfers. This is a statement that still holds true for the island, with the south coast being heavily populated with sand and reef breaks in crystal clear waters and palm-fringed beaches.
