Several breaks here, a left running along the reef edge- which you should be careful not to get caught too deep on, and a right that's nice and easy for those with less ability. When that closes out there's several serious lefts just the other side of Frog Rock - ask the boys at Wijiya Beach cottages how to get out to them.
Friendly regulars and a choice of quality reef breaks along a 400 meter stretch of coast. Although badly damaged by the tsunami the Wijiya Beach Cottages have rooms available and the boys are busy getting their lives back together. There are a couple of bars along this stretch but before the wave came the one at the cottages was the one to watch the sunset from.
For Sri Lanka this is about as convenient as it gets, uncrowded, close to town and other spots and with a chilled group of locals and beach side accomodation, a premium in SL at the moment!
