Overview

 It is a well known fact that Sri Lanka contains some of the best beaches in the world and therefore it is no surprise that is also has one of the best surfs in the world. Ahangama and Midigama is no exception. It is often called the surfers paradise as it has a very powerful left break which surfers yearn for. In Ahangama all you need to do is head straight out from the Kabalana Beach Hotel to find the break and in Midigama you can find breaks near the 139km marker. The entire area is a haven for surfers as it offers the cheapest deals in food and accommodation.  Also another advantage is that the breaks are never crowded so you can get some solid surfing done.

Ahangama and Midigama are significant in the surfing world because of the breaks. The best surfing spot is found right in between Ahangama and Midigama.  The spot which is south from Galle is called “the rock” as the peak is right in front of a huge rock which sticks out from the sea. The break has a long left and a steep short right. It is known to break up to 7 feet and the incoming tide provides the very best for surfing. The better known area is Midigama as there are many cheap offers as well as noteworthy breaks. This area is good for beginners and it is possible to go long boarding as well. The morning offshore wind gives out a few barrels.
Early in the morning and late evening it is possible to see some stilt fisherman in Ahangama a practice unique to most Sri Lankan coastal villages. Ahangama and Midigama are known to be much laid back and the perfect place to relax. Besides the sun, sea and surf there is very little that can be done or can be seen in these areas.  There is a small turtle hatchery nearby where one can see baby turtle being released back in to the ocean.  These relaxing coastal villages are the perfect places if one wants to catch the best waves in the area or relax and soak up some sun.
