Midigama Sri Lanka
Midigama is Weligama’s baby brother. A small surf town on the southern tip of Sri Lanka that can be easily missed but definitely NOT to be missed. I spent two days in Midigama drinking coconuts, surfing and relaxing on the beach!
Midigama is 150km south of Colombo (2.5 hours) and only 4km (5 minutes) from Weligama.

WHERE TO STAY IN MIDIGAMA
There is no shortage of accommodations in Midigama but I can personally recommend two great places to stay.
A stone’s throw away from the beach with incredible ocean views. There is an in-house restaurant, free wi-fi, excellent rooms and friendly staff for only 3,000 Rupees per night.
A cozy, family-owned house with two private rooms available. There are no ocean views but it’s a short 2-minute walk to Midigama Beach for only 1,000 Rupees per night.
GETTING AROUND MIDIGAMA
Midigama Sri Lanka is so small that you can walk from one end of the beach to the other in 10-minutes. If you are wanting to head to neighbouring towns Ahangama or Weligama for a supermarket or ATM, it is best to hail down a tuk-tuk that will cost you around 200 Rupees. Otherwise to walk it will take you 30-minutes to 1-hour. There is no ATM machine in Midigama so make sure you have enough cash for your time spent here.
