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!

Have you got travel insurance for Sri Lanka? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. 

 

WHERE IS MIDIGAMA

Midigama is 150km south of Colombo which takes around 2 to 3 hours by car, train or bus.

From Weligama, it’s a 4km drive to Midigama which is a short 5 minutes drive.

WHERE TO STAY IN MIDIGAMA

There is no shortage of accommodations in Midigama but I can personally recommend two great places to stay.

Surf Paradise & Cabana

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.

Gem Villa

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 neighboring 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. Alternatively, you can walk and it will take you around 30-minutes to 1-hour.

There is no ATM machine in Midigama so make sure you have enough cash for your time spent here.
