Plantation Surf Inn is a guesthouse we offer accommodation and a delicious restaurant and cafe in Midigama,Southern Sri Lanka. It's Away from the noise of the road, but still close enough to the white sand beaches and waves.

It is possible to surf, snorkel, dive, and fish right in front of the guesthouse so if you're looking for surfing accommodation and food in Sri Lanka we think you'll be delighted with our tropical set up. The guest house is run by our friendly family with an attached restaurant who's chef has 24 years experience in a 5 star restaurant in Colombo(father).

Also mother is making local cuisine (CURRY AND RICE) and cooking lesson even coconut roties with sweet coconut , sweet or savory including fish, chicken or prawn .

pancakes (sweet and savory).since this year we are making Sri lankan special kottu and samosa as you need(SPICY or less)


seafood , Chinese , chicken or prawns , fish , vegetable HOME MADE BURGERS and bun

with local curries




COFFEE (Italian and lavazza) and ice tea
