SK TOWN SRI LANKA
After spending some time in Ella, I decided to head back to the coast to do some more exploring along the southern coastline and I stumbled across SK Town Beach, an amazing little surf town just 10 minutes east of Matara City.
I made SK Town my base for a few days as it is an ideal location to explore the coastline to the east and west of here. There are two supermarkets close by, numerous fruit stalls and a number of surf spots to find the perfect wave!

WHAT TO DO IN SK TOWN
SK Town Sri Lanka is a popular surf spot, offering waves for all levels of surfers. The swell season on the south and west coasts of Sri Lanka is between November and March each year.
If you are a first-time surfer, you can get a lesson from one of the local surf coaches at the beach shack located at SK Town Beach. They also have boards available to rent for 300 Rupees per hour.
If surfing is not your thing, you can go for a small hike around the headland on your left-hand side, if you are facing the ocean. Here you can find small rock pools and a cluster of coconut palms, some bending right out over the ocean!
After you have had your daily dose of Vitamin Sea, perch yourself up at Tiki Bar for a fresh cold coconut! This epic little beach shack resides on the sand and just a stone’s throw from the ocean.
There are also daily yoga classes available at Surf Lanka for anyone wanting to stretch out their bodies and their minds.
WHERE TO STAY IN SK TOWN SRI LANKA
SK Town Beach has many accommodation options from private beach villas to small guest houses. I did, however, have some difficulties looking for a place to stay when searching for ‘SK Town‘ on booking.com.
All accommodations for SK Town come under the location of Matara. In your search, you will be able to view the map of the accommodations to see if they are located at SK Town Beach.
When I arrived, I literally went door knocking on the main street to a few small guest houses in search of a room. I came across one called Sunshine House just 2 minutes walk back from the beach.
This guest house is operated by two brothers and their lovely families who are overly friendly and very accommodating.
They have plenty of rooms available for 2000 Rupees per night and they also offer breakfast and dinner, at your request, for an extra 400 Rupees per meal. I cannot recommend this place enough to anyone visiting SK Town Beach.
If you would like to book in advance, visit their Facebook page Sunshine House and send them a direct message.
