Sri Lanka: South West Sri Lanka

Set your soul free and feel harmoniously in sync with your body. Sunshinestories' ethos provides the perfect eco-friendly retreat for surfers and yogis alike.

"Sri Lankan retreat that for surfers and yoga lovers"

Away from the hustle and bustle of Galle road lies the beautiful 85-year-old Dutch style colonial villa of Sunshinestories. If you are looking for the perfect Sri Lankan retreat that is a haven for both surfers and yoga lovers alike, then you have come to the right place.

"Villa is situated in the traditional village of Ahangama"

The villa is situated in the rustic traditional Sri Lankan village of Ahangama, less than a 5-minute walk away from the coast.

Wake up to a tropical island sunrise, hear monks chanting in the background and start your day with a yoga session followed by surfing. If the breaks are anticipated to be good, there’s always the flexibility for you to do it the other way round.

Being close to the waves, surfers don’t have to miss out and waste time on finding the right breaks for them. There’s plenty to choose from (over 20 breaks) and there’s something out there for everyone! Staff at the camp know where all the hot spots are. They will sometimes organise impromptu trips, take you out on the jeep packed with a cooler full of cold beers so you can get away and enjoy some of the quieter beaches.

You can always venture into the village market just a few minutes walk away from the villa and experience the authentic flavours of Sri Lankan cuisine. Come back and relax on the hammock. Quench your thirst with the unlimited fresh coconut available and crash out onto a comfy bed, lined with top quality linen after a long day.

"Eco-friendly surf camp with hot water and solar energy"

This eco-friendly surf camp has no air-conditioning, but is well designed with high ceilings, thick walls and surrounded by palm trees to keep you staying cool. The camp is equipped with wifi and hot water that is powered by the solar energy panel.
