It is a well known fact that Sri Lanka contains some of the best beaches in the world for surfing. In this context in the southern coast of Sri Lanka, Ahangama, Midigama and Welhengoda, in very close proximity to the Insight Resort are in the top listings for surfing in this beautiful island. Some call it a surfers paradise as it has very hard fall left break which surfers yearn for and enjoy.
Ahangama, Midigama and Welhengoda are significant spots due to the breaks that are listed amongst the information shared by surfers. The most interesting surfing point is found between Ahangama and Midigama and the place is called “Rock” as the peak is right in front of huge rock that juts out from the sea. The break there is supposed to be having a long left and a steep short right and the wave is supposed to be as much as 7 feet.
The Insight Resort offers very cost effective accommodation in non sea view air conditioned rooms for long stay surfers. The Resort also offers beautiful air conditioned sea view rooms.
Load your surf board on the top of a ‘tuk tuk’ and drive just 5 minutes –
Northwards to Welhengoda
Southwards to Midigama
There are many non profitable organizations supported by International Organizations that run sea turtle farms, purely maintained for the survival of sea turtles and to offer this to the next generation. There is a Turtle Farm situated in Habaraduwa which is a 10 minute drive in a tuk tuk from the Insight Resort towards Galle. It is just by the Galle-Matara main road. This Turtle Farm was started in 1986 and to date they are supposed to have released more than 500,000 sea turtles to the ocean.
It is also said on a full moon (Poya) day that many turtles can be found in the area of Midigama, and even on non full moon nights Tourists go to the Midigama area in the nights to spot turtles. It is an interesting night excursion to join up with reliable locals to watch the turtle habitat in the Ahangama and Mirigama areas.
MIRISSA – WHALE & DOLPHIN WATCHING
Mirissa is only 5 minutes away from the Insight Resort where one could board a vessel managed by a team of professionals and cruise into the deep sea to view the free movement of Whales. Mirissa is famous for its frequent sightings of blue and sperm whales. One would have to be absolutely unlucky to miss a sighting of whales in Mirissa. It is also fun to be around the Dolphins jumping all over. These friendly Dolphins are loved by majority of the fisher folk who would not want to disturb them in any way.
