Things To Do
Exploring UNESCO world heritage sites to riding 6 feet curls, there is plenty to do here at Weligama
Postcard perfect beaches, gently breaking waves and a kaleidoscopic underwater landscape sprinkled with historic wrecks, Sri Lanka’s southern coastline does not lack for magnetic charms. The plethora of things to do in Weligama is carefully curated and our staff will aid you in designing the perfect outing.
Swim and snorkel in the aquamarine bay beneath Cape Weligama. Explore neighbouring coves by kayak or learn to surf on Weligama’s legendary curls. The Adventure Centre, staffed by an experienced team of professionals, offers a comprehensive range of PADI dive courses and other offshore activities including private sunset cruises and banana boating.
Cape Weligama redefines whale watching in Mirissa, taking you beyond the bay area to open waters, making it an experience that must be on your to-do list! (Mirissa and Weligama are sister towns on the opposite sides of the Weligama Bay).
Away from this idyllic coastline, explore Sri Lanka’s lush rural hinterland of sleepy villages, paddy fields, meandering lagoons and ancient temples by guided bicycle ride. Take a boat or kayak out on nearby Koggala Lake, its tranquil lagoon edged by fragrant cinnamon gardens and tropical wildlife.
For adventures further afield, must-see destinations include Mirissa’s vibrant boat harbour and the historic Galle Fort where cobbled streets encased in coral and granite walls reveal ochre washed collonaded houses, colonial churches, and renowned jewellery boutiques.
