Trekking Between Bungalows at Ceylon Tea Trails – My Debut Hike
I got ready and was kindly gifted a pair of leech socks by the bungalow manager. Even though it was during the dry season and encountering leeches was unlikely, I was not going to take a chance. In true hiking fashion, I put the leech socks on accompanied by a fanny pack, just in case my hands must be free to break a possible fall. Setting off from Dunkeld Bungalow, Hashan and I braced ourselves for what we knew would be a tiring trek. As we began our ascent, conversation flowed effortlessly between us. Hashan, a knowledgeable naturalist, shared insights into the history of the tea estates, recounting how the British had brought Indian workers to cultivate the tea fields, leading to the establishment of a vibrant Tamil community in the region. His words resonated deeply with me, highlighting the immense contribution of this community to the legacy of Ceylon Tea. The very tea we enjoy across the world and the same tea I had enjoyed so much earlier that morning.

It’s no secret that Ahangama houses some of the most Instagrammed dining spots in the island right now.

The best independent restaurants and bars in Weligama, Sri Lanka
Once a sleepy village, Weligama is now south Sri Lanka’s buzziest surf town. It’s vibrant, laidback, and magical, with the sunny southern coast’s palm-fringed shores and inland paddies. It draws in both thrill seekers and those who love something a bit more sedate—breezy sundowners by the ocean, after-dinner nightcaps under star-studded skies, and lazy, jazzy brunches with good coffee under the tropical sun. More recently, Weligama has also become one of Sri Lanka’s culinary-forward beach spots, with a new sleeve of cafes, pizzerias, al fresco dining venues and sushi bars championing native, locally grown produce and once overlooked spirits. There’s something for everyone here, from al fresco lunches in stunning settings to vegan-focused menus, and craft cocktails curated by homegrown mixologists. This is our edit of some of the best places to eat and drink in Weligama, within a short drive from the resort—in no particular order.
