HIKKADUWA

THE LAND OF REEF BREAKS WHERE THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FLAT DAY

Located to the Southwest of the southern province (capital Galle) this is Sri Lanka’s most popular surfing and tourist region, with a rich variety of reef breaks.

There is constant swell so you’ll rarely have a flat day, although the onshore wind sometimes makes an appearance during the off seasons.

The versatile and diverse wave selection in this region also includes some beach breaks, and South of Hikkaduwa you’ll find Madiha, one of the best surf spots in the country, located near Matara and known for the localism of its surfers.

The colonial region of Galle has more to offer than surfing and diving among the local reefs, such as the numerous Buddhist temples or Adam's Peak Mountain, with its unforgettable view. Elephants and monkeys are also common local attractions and there is plenty of nightlife in Hikkaduwa as well.

WEATHER

The weather is dry and sunny on the South and West coasts (Hikkaduwa) between November and March, when the East coast feels the brunt of the monsoon. There are regular showers during the rest of the year. The weather here is more equatorial with air and water temperatures averaging 27/28 degrees year-round.

SEASON

The official surfing season kicks off at the end of October or early November and lasts until April. The winds blow offshore into consistent swells and it rarely rains. During the rest of the year the swell consistency actually increases but can be affected by onshore winds and rain.
