WELIGAMA

THE LOCATION & WELIGAMA BAY

Weligama is located on Sri Lanka's picturesque south coast, Weligama still offers the charm of an idyllic fishing village. Its approximately 144 kilometres south of Colombo. It’s a unique Bay with a wide and long sandy beach located in Mathara district of Southern province close to Mathara town. The tiny island once owned by Frenchman Count de Mauny has built a beautiful house on it. Enjoy walks along uncrowded beaches, still untouched by mass tourism and be fascinated by the famous stilt fishermen. The Bay is famous for its remarkable fishermen doing stilt fishing and handmade lace, another highlight is the traditional Devil Dance, a southern Sri Lankan special. Known for its healing powers, Devil Dancers are invited to help speed up the recovery process of illnesses. A great thing to watch and/or even participate. Wwligama is very famous for seafood. Weligama is well-known for its brilliant surfing beach, so try your hand and take lessons with a local instructor.  You can also go windsurfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing and whale watching. Alternatively, head to nearby Mirissa Bay for the day, a stunning beach which is a popular tourist destination and provides many things for travellers to do, particularly water-sports. Weligama is more than beach life. Much more. Surrounded by rubber and coconut plantations, ancient temples and spice gardens, natural sanctuaries and exotic wildlife, Weligama offers something for everyone. If you’re looking for a break from the beach and a taste of Sri Lanka’s culture and history, then a visit to the 17th century Dutch Galle Fort will not disappoint. The ideal location of Weligama makes it a great starting point for excursions along the south and west coast as well as for exploration of the national parks.

Whale and dolphin watching 

Whale and dolphin watching is one of the most exciting water activities you can do in Sri Lanka during your holiday. The ever smiling, mischievous dolphins will put on a show while some of the oldest and the largest sea creatures, the humpback and the blue whales, will nonchalantly glide past you, when you embark on a whale and dolphin watching excursion.

Turtle Hatchery

The "Sea Turtle Farm & Hatchery" is a non - profitable organization which is maintained for the survival of Sea Turtles for the next generation. The "Turtle Farm" is situated in Habaraduwa (southern part of Sri Lanka - Galle District) near to the beautiful beach. That is 5m from the Galle - Matara main road. The centre was started in 1986 and up to now we have released more than 500,000 Sea Turtles to the ocean. From the past, due to the cruel activities of humans, there is a danger that turtles are facing extinction. This rare varieties of Sea Turtles are destroyed by man day by day. It is the duty of each and every one to take action to save these turtles from extinction for the sake of our future generation. Regarding this we started to save Sea Turtles in 1986 and up to now we have succeeded to attain the goal gradually.

    "We are an older couple celebrating a lot of years of marriage (and hiking) in Sri Lanka in February this year, for two weeks, and three days in the Maldives. Although we love to drive, we chose to go with a driver-guide, after planning the trip completely independently. (It turned out he might help us in the planning and selection of hotels, we own). The main advantage is reaching the sites, some of which are tired, refreshed after someone else used to bad roads, with bad signage - If you are i..." Sam
