“If you like surfing go there by tuk tuk.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you like surfing visit the place. A lot of schools can be used by you or your children. Only about 20 km from Long Beach hotel. The beach si not so clean as the water at the hotel

“Surfing thrill”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

A beautiful beach to relax and to take surfing lessons. We took our lessons from Samaru Beach House which has a restaurant, rooms to be given out and a surf school.

The waves are good for all grades of surfers. There are lot of surfers on the beach and friendly ones who can be approached for a few tips as well.

“Beach and Cottage Industry”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Weligama is a relaxing and scenic coastal town, along the eastern coast of Sri Lanka.. It however had suffered from the Tsunami of 2006. The shoreline has cut further into the land area, and has revealed huge rocks that were never there before. The people there had suffered too; but they are building their lives again. Lace making is a cottage industry and a few women have restarted this business. Their work is very intricate and lovely. it takes something like 3 months to do a beautiful lace tablecloth.

Go there my friends. The beach is lovely and buy some laces. By doing so you will be helping the women there to have an income, and rebuild their lives. So its service with a smile for you; but they shed tears in gratitude when you buy something from them.

Go there, do this service and Mother Nature rewards you with a scenic view - one you will never forget; be it sunrise, sunset or any other time of day!
