Gurubebila Our Local Beach
”Quite a sunset over the Indian ocean tonight, the crows disappeared and the fruit bats appeared .. Not a bad day late out, the surf was dark when I paddled in.” Mike from Surf South Sri Lanka
Gurebella is a quiet village between between Midigama Left and Weligama Bay. There are two local surf breaks Plantation point and Coconut point. It’s pretty chilled and we surf there from dawn till dusk. You get some lovely clean barrels from a left and right hander, up to 6ft on a good day and a 400m ride. Very few tourists, just cows and the cricket team so you may just have the line-up to yourself.
Our flagship hotel Lion’s Rest opened in December 2013. The eight-room Boutique Hotel faces the village green, leading to a clean sandy beach and Coconuts surf point. There are two large Family Rooms, three Balcony Deluxe rooms, Poolside rooms and one with a private Sunset Terrace. Book your room at Lions Rest Hotel
