Weligama

Sri Lanka

Weligama

Located on Sri Lanka's picturesque South Coast, Weligama still offers the charm of an idyllic fishing village while providing excellent accommodation choices, catering for all budgets and needs.
Enjoy walks along uncrowded beaches, still untouched by mass tourism and be fascinated by the famous stilt fishing men.

But Weligama is more than beach life. Much more. Surrounded by rubber and coconut plantations, ancient temples and spice gardens, natural sanctuaries and exotic wildlife, Weligama offers something for everybody.

Another highlight is the traditional Devil Dance, a Southern Sri Lankan special. Known for its healing powers, Devil Dancers are invited to help speeding up the recovery process of illnesses. A great thing to watch and/or even participate.

The ideal location of Weligama makes it a great starting point for excursions along the South- and West Coast as well as for explorations of the National Parks.
