Camp Poe is a boutique surf camp and yoga retreat based in Ahangama on the south coast of Sri Lanka. It comprises 8 large luxury double tents and 3 bungalows for you to stay in.


There are five home cooked evening meals served per week, as dinners on Wednesdays and Saturdays are not included in the price of this retreat. After a powerful and healthy breakfast, find a shaded hammock and read a book from the little library, relaxing your body from the morning surfing.

Recharge your batteries by the swimming pool, and get ready for the afternoon yoga session. After a nutritious dinner with new friends, enjoy each other's company by exchanging stories. Find a restful sleep under the shooting stars, drifting off to the sounds of nature and ocean waves.

Yoga at Camp Poe

Yoga is a big part of Camp Poe as it is a great way to promote health, vitality, and mindfulness. Sessions run twice per day in a yoga shala set amongst luscious jungle and resident monkeys. Classes vary from Vinyasa to Yin, with a strong focus on yoga for surfers. There is also a collection of yoga books for you to borrow during your stay!

Surfing at Camp Poe

Camp Poe is located in-front of the legendary "sticks" surf point, which has a left and right-hander. A short walk away is "the rock" in Kabalana, an amazing A-frame with a short puny right and long reeling left. A short tuk tuk will take you to numerous breaks in Midigama and Weligama. There are waves here for all abilities, at all times. Jump in with Camp Poe!
