MIDIGAMA: the buzzing surf village

Midigama is a hidden gem on the Southern coast of Sri Lanka. Some of the first travelers to discover it were wave-hungry hippies in the 1980’s. Famous for world-class waves and beautiful beaches– it attracts adventurous souls from all over the world and the island.

Perfectly positioned to explore then entire South Coast, a 20 minute drive north will take you through Ahangama and Kabalana while a 20 minute journey south will take you to Mirissa, through Weligama- and the whole stretch of coast is packed with gorgeous beaches and awesome surf breaks. One of Midigama’s charms is the quaint, village atmosphere it has maintained, almost all of the businesses are run independently and there are no big hotel chains (…yet, lets hope it stays that way!) Walk the sleepy streets, greet the friendly locals, buy some fresh organic fruits and vegetables from the nearby market and visit a roti shop for some traditional Sri Lankan food.

Yoga, surf, chill, socialize, how are you gonna spend your lanka livin‘?
