First of all, we must talk about surfing. In the world, there are few villas that can boast of having their own surf spot, and we have two of them! Jungle Beach is a unique reef spot, with a sharp left wave, more suited for advanced surfers, and a long flat right wave, for those who have begun to surf recently. There is reliable surf from October to April.
Our villas offer stunning views of both spots, so you can check the waves or watch the surfers directly from the comfort of your own terrace. For first timers to surfing, the spot can be a bit difficult. It would be better to go to a beach with a sandy bottom and small gentle waves. Weligama’s main beach is a 10-minute drive from the villa. We can recommend the best surf school and arrange transportation for you.
For lovers of snorkelling – Jungle beach is a real gift. The colourful coral reef is filled with diverse life – sea turtles, stingrays and dozens of species of exotic fish.
Yoga at Eraeliya Villas & Gardens
Our villa has everything you need for individual or group yoga and meditation classes. We have a wide variety of spaces for practicing, all of which take advantage of the fresh ocean breeze and inspiring views. You will find everything from a private terrace to a wooden deck a meter from the surf. Or if you prefer, a shady garden or a meadow with a fresh cut lawn. At your request, we can organize lessons with a qualified instructor, or we would be happy to host your yoga retreat.
In our SPA Pavilion, everything is provided for you so that you can enjoy a professional massage, Ayurveda aroma therapy or spa treatments.
