 Access

Thalpe is around 15 minutes by Tuk south of Galle (5 mins from Unawatuna). The good break is just south of the Coral Beach Guesthouse (out the front of a small wooden hut with surf lessons painted on its sign). A well known local surf spot but overlooked by most travels as you cant see the break properly from the road. 100 rupees by Tuk from Unawatuna (one way).

Careful of the rocks at low tide - no urchins here though which is a bonus... be patient, what looks like mush can turn into some nice swell very quickly

Atmosphere

Chilled out location - frequented by locals, most who are very laid back and happy to show you the right spots. Awesome sunsets - a good spot for duskys. A good spot for getting over reef fear as it is fairly deep in high tide.

Spot added before a.k.a "The Peaks" - Hello there!
In fact i contributed "The Peaks" spot 6 months before "Thalpe" was added.
same spot = same description
Anyway, been there for 1 week at Coral Beach Guesthouse before Xmas 2003.
Very Niiice Viiiibes!
Every morning was having a few rides on these little waves, all by my own!
I put some photos on "The Peaks" page.
Got back in Paris December 24th, spending the Eve in my hotel room.
1 year later, Tsnumai striked! Total shock!
Nature gives, Nature takes.
I prayed for all these lost souls, remembering every smile i met...
Wish to get back there to support the local economy.
Bohama istouti. Ayubowan.
