Atmosphere

When I first arrived in meddawatta i was amazed at the sets of waves coming into this near desserted beach. The locals are friendly and great guys to get surfing info from. The best time to visit is nov to april with the waves at their very best during febuary. The sunsets are also to die for!!!

General

this is a great spot, it is still quite unknown which means that you dont have to battle for waves like in hikkaduwa and midigama.

We met a local surfer named silva in matara who first took us to this point. - thanks silva for the great advice!!!

- I surfed Meddawatta this January 2012. Really great place to surf, also with my longboard big time. Somedays difficult big waves, but overall great conditions! I stayed at Latitude Six. Amazing place, really friendly and great people! Not as touristy as other places, but the most wonderful place to stay.

happy das - great surfing spot, friendly locals, sea not crowded - some days was alone in the water.

stayed at latitude six, silva and the guys made me feel really welcome and relaxed. Fantastic food, atmosphere, rooms - amazing guest house, will be back again this season.

beautiful - I visited Meddawatta 2007, and still dreaming about coming back. Latitude six is nicely situated with a perfect view over the quiet beach with good surf and friendly chandana and rachelle. meddawatta beach deserves its name as a 'secret spot', you'll meet much less tourists than in noisy hikkaduwa, with excellent possibilites of chilling at the beach. total relaxation! a pearl!
