SK Town Beach In Matara, Sri Lanka – Visitor’s Guide

//

Planning your next adventure? Start with these Travel Resources!

SK Town Beach is an amazing little surf town just 10 minutes east of Matara City on the southern coastline of Sri Lanka.

I made SK Town my base for a few days as it’s 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!

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 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.

Before starting your adventure, though, make sure to bring your reusable water bottle, you’ll definitely need it on the way.

 

Have you got travel insurance for Sri Lanka? We all know accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance will save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong.

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 on booking.com.

All accommodations 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!

If you would like to book in advance, visit their Facebook page Sunshine House and send them a direct message.
