During our travel on the south coast of Sri Lanka we stayed at a very cool place called Ceylon Sliders in Weligama.

This place is run by Petter and Linn who followed their dream and started with a travel blog too when they first left home after finishing college. They found living the surfing lifestyle in the tropics would be their dream life and decided to move to Sri Lanka.

We loved their story and decided that we need to stay at Ceylon Sliders to experince what they have built. We enjoyed our stay a lot.

The Ceylon Sliders is located at the beach in Weligama and is a very cool spot. They only have a few rooms which are spacious and beautifully furnished. We loved our room and the big terrace we had.

Weligama is one of the bays which is quite well known for surfing as well. It isn’t the most beautiful beach to chill at but it is perfect for surf beginners. We rented some surfboards on the beach for less than 1 Dollar per hour or we rented one at our accommodation.

They also serve you amazing food at the Ceylon Sliders. They have a cute Café in their courtyard and also a newer rooftop restaurant where we had a few lovely dinners enjoying the sunset with the delicious food and drinks.

The Café and rooftop are of course open to the public and not only for their overnight guests. So if you are around we recommend you to go for a lunch or dinner.

They also have a cute little store at the entrance with lovely stuff. They sell very cool surfboards, swimwear and other clohting, jewelry and accessories and also beauty products and gifts. We bought there our stain straws and were super happy that from that day on we never used a single plastic straw!
