While spending time in south Sri Lanka, we were fortunate to come across Weligama Surf Yoga Retreat. They run monthly week-long getaways in the Bandara Watte Villa, a beautiful colonial escape surrounded by many local animals including wild peacocks. Located in the jungle nearby Weligama, Sri Lanka, their adventures are equally focused on surfing and yoga, using experienced local surf guides and certified yoga instructors. They also feature a “give back” volunteering day where participants visit a local school, teaching the children yoga and donating school supplies.

The morning and sunset yoga practice is at the Bandara Watte Villa. You listen to the sounds of the jungle while peacefully drifting into a meditative state. If you get lucky a peacock will show its feathers.

Whether in Sri Lanka for a short time or a long trip, Weligama Surf Yoga Retreat is a great way to see and do a lot, without worrying about anything. The staff is top-notch and the venue is classic, you’ll quickly feel at home and not want to leave!
