Weligama, Fisherman’s Reef


Looooong paddle out from the mosque, new marina for local fishing boats making it easier and more crowded. One side has a very very shallow reef, better take a local surf guide 😉

Peeling 300m right break that holds between 3 and 5ft, works well in a big swell. 800m paddle out from a beach entry point, near Weligama harbor across very shallow reef. Possible to pay a fisherman to take you. We would recommend you take a local knowledgeable surfer who can guide you round the reef, it is very shallow in parts so take care of your paddle out route as the reef has notched up a few board repairs. Perfect at sunrise.
