Weligama situated 171 km from the Bandaranaike International Airport is another popular seaside resort in the south of Sri Lanka. It is a picturesque 'sandy village' with its sandy sweeping bay, as its name translates in Sinhala. This quaint seaside resort which is supported mainly by fishing and tourism is also home to a number of historical sites but its biggest attraction is its stilt fishermen seated on tall wooden poles in the deep sea waiting for their catch. The seas off Weligama offer limitless opportunities for water sport activities and great relaxation prospects for those who wish to unwind and chill out. Take in the breathtaking sunset and dine accompanied by the ocean symphony.
