If you need expert instructions, many instructors will offer their services at a relatively cheap rate.


Gurubebila Coconut Point

This is another picturesque bay you find in Sri Lanka. This is regarded as an A-frame reef break and this is more suitable for intermediate and advanced levels surfers with a considerable amount of practice and expertise. Paddle out from the beach or simply jump off the reef to access the peak, after which, it'll all be about enjoying an awesome surfing adventure. This surf point is also known as Coconuts. The beach is secluded, and you can have a relaxing time here if your schedule permits.



This A-frame peak offers long barrels on either side. Because of this reason, adventure seekers often find this surfing spot much more awesome than the rest. Since surfing is hailed as one of the most popular and demanded things to do in Galle Sri Lanka by tourists, Kabalana gets very busy and crowded during the peak season.

Beginners find themselves so comfortable with this beach break, but since many of them gather here during the peak season, it'll be too crowded for you to try your moves peacefully. This is also an A-frame reef, best to be explored during the off-peak season.


Mirissa Beach Break

Mirissa is also another coastal town, which is popular among the tourists who come to Sri Lanka. The Mirissa Bay is also considered as a picturesque place mainly because of the palm trees all around.
