Retreat location

Hiriketiya Beach

This recently discovered bay is described by all who visit as "paradise". Hiriketiya bay is without a doubt the premier beach of South Sri Lanka. Away from the commercialized tourist zones, Hiriketiya bay feels like a home away from home.

Nearby undiscovered bays make the far south coast a hidden gem of swimming, walking, and biking trails. Prevailing easterly or westerly winds are kept away by the horseshoe shape of the bay, making swimming and surfing conditions safe all year round.

It is located 22 kilometers (14 miles) east of the city of Matara. Dickwella is noted for its long sandy beach which is protected by headlands, reefs, and sand-bars, making it safer for swimming.

Rekawa Turtles Beach

Five species of turtles struggle ashore to lay their eggs on Rekawa Beach. Groups are led to nest sites to witness these beautiful creatures. some nights the commotion can be deeply disturbing for the turtles.

Turtle nests are here all year round, but the main season is April to July. The rarest turtles to sight are the giant leatherbacks. The company uses certified guides and spotters; note that torches and flash photography are prohibited.

Blow Hall (Hummanaya)

The name Hummanaya is attributed to the noise made when the water gushes up the narrow fissure. Watch the seawater spurt out to towering heights when it thrusts water against the narrow rocky cove and pushes it through a hole in the rock bed with a "wheezing" sound.

Sometimes when the wind conditions are favorable the water sprouts up to a height of 30 meters. This is a rare and exciting natural sight and has been a crowd-puller for many years. Also known as the Hummanaya.

Weligama Beach surf spot (beach break)

Surrounded by golden beaches, excellent warm water, and surfing conditions, Sri Lanka has become popular among surfers from all over the world in recent years. My Surf Camp Surf School is located right in the epicenter of 10 surf spots for all surfing levels within a four-kilometer distance in either direction.
