    What are the best places to surf in the Down South Sri Lanka?

    I'm planning to surf this month. Can you please let me know which place is better, Mirissa or Weligama? What's the cost for board rental and coach? Any other interesting things to do like The Doctor's House?

    If you are a beginner Weligama beach is a good choice for you. In Weligama beach, you can get epoxy and fibre-glass boards rental in 300 to 450 LKR, according to the board and the lessons you can get a coach around 2000-3000 LKR.

    Thanks for your detailed reply. Now I can plan accordingly. Can you tell me why Weligama is better than Mirissa?

    Weligama beach surf season is start from the end of September to end of May so now is the season time that's why I suggested Weligama beach and due to the beach length, It can hold up many surfers without getting too crowded.

    That's awesome because I don't do crowds. Is surfing alone safe for a first timer?

    If it's your first time better you surf with some experienced person or coach. Adventures are wonderful but some we should prioritize our safety.

    Both are unique by there beauty, but my friends mostly suggest Mirissa. Why don't you try Arugambay to surf, It's also a wonderful place to do.

    Yes, I'm looking for a coach as I'm not a experienced swimmer. Safety comes before fun.

    I almost planned to Mirissa but as Bhavya suggested now switched to Weligama. I've been to Arugambay already but didn't surf though. The journey is too long from Colombo and a whole day is gone on two way travel whereas down south is nearby and a time saver.
