Wijaya Beach Sri Lanka

The Shack – Dewata

If you’ve finished up an evening surf in Dewata, we recommend heading to The Shack. They offer delicious food and cocktail menu. Their lighter bites such as the battered cuttlefish go down well with a few beers as you watch the sun go down. They play music late every night and often have DJs to switch things up.

Wijaya Beach – Talpe

Sundowners at Wijaya Beach do not disappoint. Deep music plays late into the evening, providing the perfect soundtrack to the sun descending behind Frog Rock. In high season they throw parties, welcoming hundreds of people through their doors and on to the beach to dance. Their Moscow Mule or fruit daiquiris are particularly good.

The Doctor’s House – Madiha

Further along the coast in Matara, you will find The Doctor’s House. This is a great place to hang out after dark. Keep an eye on their Instagram for upcoming events, including live performances from a mix of bands and singers. They often host parties attended by the majority of the surf community, so it’s a great place to get talking to people from all over the world.

Kingfisher – Unawatuna

Unawatuna is your main late nightclubbing destination on the South Coast. There are a number of bars/clubs along the beach such as Happy Banana, Kingfisher and Riddim bar. If you fancy cheap drinks and dancing on the beach into the early hours of the morning then give one of these places a try.
