Beyond Easy Beach…

In our twelve years experience on this magical island – second only to Hawaii in its biodiversity -- we have travelled the whole country: North, South, East and West, the highlands and the cultural triangle. In so doing we have built up an expert network of contacts. So we can advise you on where to go and what to do, both:

In the local area ...

  • Whale watching
  • Scuba-diving
  • Snorkeling
  • Koggala lake boat trips and kayaking
  • Fishing
  • Rampart walks, boutique hotel, museum/gallery visits, clothing and gem shopping in Galle's incredible UNESCO world heritage fort
  • Bike trips through the enchanted paddy field valleys
  • Tea plantation tours
  • Rainforest eco-tours with Rainforest Rescue International
  • Volunteering
  • Traditional Sri Lankan curry cookery courses
  • Authentic (legitimate) Ayurverdic and spa therapy centres
  • Excursions to Yala National Park where we can hook you up with ‘The Leopard Man', Sri Lanka's answer to Crocodile Dundee
  • The most interesting exhibitions and events occurring in the province including advice on the Galle Literary Festival which takes place in late January
  • Ancient Buddhist temple trips (one within ten minutes walk)
  • Jewelry and tea factory trips
  • Day-trips to Mulgirigala rock temple which has a spectacular view
  • The coolest cafes, bars, nightclub events and restaurants in the area
  • The most interesting exhibitions and events occurring in the province including advice on the best events to attend at the Galle Literary Festival which takes place every late January.
  • Surfing and surf lessons. Easy Beach is for surfers the equivalent of Chamonix for snowboarders and skiers – we are positioned bang slap in the middle of the most surf-break-rich 10km of the Subcontinent. We have surfed most of the well-known breaks and secret spots on the south coast so we can point you in the right direction in that regard. The water temperature is deliciously warm and the reef and beach-breaks here are pretty consistent from October through until the end of April. We have been nicely surprised during 2011 at how often the waves have been peeling during what surfers traditionally call ‘off-season' too: from May through September. We can't guarantee you'll get good surf at this time of year like we can from October through April, but you may well get lucky. For kids and beginners there is an incessant supply of white water waves to learn on year round.

    There are two perilous reef breaks right in front of Easy Beach, only for the brave and expert/advanced level surfers. 3 minutes walk to the left and right there are beach breaks good for beginners, kids and boogie boarders all year round. 2 km to the north of our village, at Kabalana we have ‘The Rock', probably the best A-Frame reef break in Sri Lanka. 4 km to the north is Talpe and then, just south of Galle is Unawatuna, both of which have some interesting reef breaks we can show you. The famous but over-crowded Hikkaduwa breaks are the other side of Galle, about an hour's drive away. 

    1.5km south of us we have Rhams Right and Lazy Left, which speak for themselves. Midigama ‘Plantation' reef break is 1km after that. 3km further round is Weligama Bay, one of the best beach breaks in the world for learning and long boarders. Stunning Mirissa Beach, which has two fairly good but short and crowded reef breaks is just 2km further southeast, after Weligama. After that comes a good intermediate left hand reef break at Polhena, about a 45-minute tuk-tuk ride away.

As for the secret spots…well, they would not remain secret if we put them on our website. To get to the breaks that are beyond walking distance, take a tuk-tuk with your boards strapped on the roof.
