The Ahangama area is home to the most consistent, and possibly the best, surf in Sri Lanka. The surf season on the South Coast of Sri Lanka is October to May, but you typically get waves all year round.

Tea Tree has two reef breaks right out the front. This is pretty rare for villas in Sri Lanka.

Only a short tuk-tuk ride away are some of the best beach and reef breaks on the South Coast. Check out the local breaks on the right, most of which are a few minutes from Tea Tree.

“The region of Ahangama to Mirissa is 9 miles long and could be called Sri Lanka’s tribute to Hawaii’s North Shore 7-mile miracle. There are a handful of fun surf spots from lefts and rights to beachies and A-frames. Amongst these breaks you’ll find spots that cater to the beginner and others that serve up waves to satisfy an intermediate and even advanced surfer.”               – Surf Dubai
