Polhena Fishing Village Surf Point
Two kilometers from Matara is the fishing village of Polhena. There are a series of small beaches in the area and some great areas to relax or snorkel in basins created by the reefs. The surfing has both fast left and right handers over a reef break that can reach up to 6ft. If you paddle out a bit further you may even see a whale or two, the area is popular for watching cetaceans.
