THINGS TO DO

Step outside, and you are close to the heart of the vibrant seaside village of Weligama, the first city established in the southern province in the 3rd century is a timeless paradise where the traditional sounds and scenes of Sri Lankan life mingle effortlessly with the modern.  The village boasts of the finest bay in Sri Lanka, with photogenic islands, sun kissed golden beaches and one of the safest seas year-round on the south coast where every conceivable marine activity is available. At the sea from the shore – swim, snorkel, sail or scuba dive in it, surf on it, or take a trip in a boat to go fishing, island hopping or watch whales and dolphins.

Lace weavers, fishing folks and catamarans, are a common site along the coast. Bustling city center is full of shops from gems to clothing.

Just a short journey by tuk-tuk away, you will see the famous stilt fishermen, perched on top of poles in the sea as they seek to catch their supper.

A few meters away, stand a megalith to the memory of Kushtaraja- the Leper king- who carved his statue in the 6th century, historic Agrabodi and Rajakula-wadana temples.

Just inland from Weligama there are estates where tea, cinnamon, rubber, and coconuts are grown.  There are also paddy fields, lakes, wild jungles, picturesque little hamlets, and many Buddhist temples.
