Beyond the boundaries of The Sandyha is a plethora of interesting day activities, gourmet experiences or tranquil exploration of the coastal belt or the impossibly green interior. Visit a tea plantation or witness the ageless process of cinnamon cultivation. Ride a bike through the rice paddies, drink from a freshly plucked coconut or find deliciously unique “short eats” at roadside food stalls.
Centuries old Galle Fort, one of the jewels of southern Sri Lanka and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just 25 minutes away where you can while away a whole day just browsing through an eclectic array of boutiques or savor some of Galleʼs best bites in an ever-growing cafe and restaurant scene.
Venture south/east to discover amazing surf and dining spots at the beaches of Midigama, Weligama, Mirissa, Madiha and Hiriketiya Bay.
“The region of Ahangama to Mirissa is 9 miles long and could be called Sri Lanka’s tribute to Hawaii’s North Shore 7-mile miracle. There are a handful of fun surf spots from lefts and rights to beachies and A-frames. Amongst these breaks you’ll find spots that cater to the beginner and others that serve up waves to satiate an intermediate and even advanced surfer.”
