At Weligama, one’s attention is understandably drawn to the sea. To an all-embracing bay, arms thrown wide. . The name, Waligama literally means "sandy village" which refers to the area's sandy sweep bay. It is approximately 144 kilometers south of Colombo, pristine sandy area, welcoming the long frothing rollers in push after push against its barrel chest of a beach. To the iconic stilt fishermen silhouetted against the setting sun. Dotted with rocky outcrops & fringed with fine golden sand. In Weligama and environs, by rubber and coconut plantations, ancient temples and spice gardens, natural sanctuaries and exotic wildlife. Another highlight is the traditional Devil Dance, a Southern Sri Lankan special. Known for its healing powers, Devil Dancers are invited to help speeding up the recovery process of illnesses. It is a great thing to watch and to participate. There is a lot on offer.
