Itinerary

Surf Surf Surf
  • We are returning to Kabalana beach each year, which is the middle of the South-Western Sri Lankan surf coastline. This is where we explore all the amazing waves in the area. The ocean is transparent and warm, the waves are predictable, friendly and diverse, it’s hot and the sun is constantly shining, nature is incredible (largest biodiversity in Asia)
  • We can just walk down with our boards to the breathtaking shore 2 minutes from our house, drink coconut and paddle out to one of the best waves in Sri Lanka in the almost tacky orange sunset.
Food

There is an immense amount of coconuts, the food is fresh, delicious and cheap. Tropical fruits (coconut, mango, banana, passion fruit, pineapple) face you everywhere. Local foods are usually based on seafood, chicken, rice and vegetables, such as chicken fried rice or crab curry. Everything is healthy, delicious and cheap.

Galle

Nearby is the city of Galle, with its instantly recognizable Dutch architecture. Here tropical flowers intertwine with the fragrant mix of spices and the saltwater breeze coming off the ocean. It’s little wonder this city is a magnet for artists, designers, writers and photographers from the world over, who stop by for some inspiration. In Galle, there’s a huge and growing art-scene, and there are plenty of galleries to visit.

Alternative programs

Along the way, you can visit Yala National Park where you can spot elephants, bears, and even crocodiles! Another day, you will jump on a boat and head out whale watching, and perhaps even spot some dolphins from right up close. You can also visit a local turtle farm, where they raise baby turtles. You won’t also miss seeing some of Sri Lanka’s famous tea plantations.

WHAT KIND OF VACCINATIONS SHOULD I HAVE?

Please ask your local health authority. Usually there are no mandatory vaccinations.

Sri Lanka

  • Sri Lanka is famous for its tea plantations, its stunning rain forests, and its sandy beaches. But, there are also two distinct historical flavours that have left a lasting mark on the island: one is the colonial architecture, the other is the thousands of years of buddhist culture that continues to inspire the decorative flair of the island.
  • The tour is primarily for surfers - or those wanting to learn to surf, but it’s also great for those who’d rather explore an alternative side to Sri Lanka by soaking up everything there is to see and do here.


Creating a postcard-perfect vibe

  • Sri Lanka is a unique surfing hotspot. It’s especially good for beginners, and the natural landscape is straight-up incredible. Take for example a sunset surfing session, where the locals fishing on the beach will create a postcard-perfect vibe. It’s even an unforgettable expereince just getting from A to B by tuktuk. So, whether we’re going to a party in the jungle at night, or heading to a sunrise surf spot – you’re guranteed a memorable time.


Saltwater breeze and fragrant spices

  • Our accommodation is made up of 12 two-person villas, with each villa facing onto a tropical garden next to the pool. Nearby is the city of Galle, with its instantly recognisable Dutch architecture. Here tropical flowers intertwine with the fragrant mix of spices and the saltwater breeze coming off the ocean. It’s little wonder this city is a magnet for artists, designers, writers and photographers from the world over, who stop by for some inspiration. In Galle there’s a huge and growing art-scene, and there are plenty of galleries to visit.


Natural wonders to discover

  • But it’s Sri Lanka’s natural landscape that makes this island country especially interesting. We offer a lot of optional daytrips. Along the way we’ll visit Yala National Park where we’ll spot elephants, bears and even crocodiles! Another day we’ll jump on a boat and head out whale watching, and perhaps even spot some dolphins from right up close. We’ll also visit a local turtle farm, where they raise baby turtles. And, we won’t miss seeing some of Sri Lanka’s famous tea plantations.
  • Of course the itinerary won’t be too packed; we want to leave heaps of time to soak up the unique expereinces that Sri Lanka has to offer even in our down-time. Take your time sipping coconut water on the beach, or sit back and relax while drinking a beer on an uninhabbited island.
