Experiencing The Sandhya
Imagine the perfect holiday destination. A mile long, white sandy beach, swaying palm trees, a front row seat to magical sunsets, world renowned sites and a plethora of activities close-by yet guaranteed relaxation even closer. This is exactly what The Sandhya offers.
“The region of Ahangama to Mirissa is 9 miles long and could be called Sri Lanka’s tribute to Hawaii’s North Shore 7-mile miracle. There are a handful of fun surf spots from lefts and rights to beachies and A-frames. Amongst these breaks you’ll find spots that cater to the beginner and others that serve up waves to satiate an intermediate and even advanced surfer.”
Kabalana Beach, on the golden south coast of Sri Lanka just by the buzzing and eclectic town of Ahangama has come into its own in recent years with surfers, families, and digital nomads alike. Pristine sand, stunning sunsets and a consistent swell has nurtured a laid-back scene where surf lovers, beach bunnies, serial retreat hunters and quiet couples coexist with welcoming locals.
Beyond the boundaries of The Sandhya and Kabalana Beach lies a guidebook full of interesting day activities, shopping expedition, gourmet experiences or tranquil exploration of the coastal belt or the impossibly green interior.
Centuries old Galle Fort, the crowning jewel of southern Sri Lanka and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just 25 minutes away. While away a whole day browsing through an eclectic array of boutiques, stopping for well-earned sips and bites from an ever-growing cafe and restaurant scene. Start your historical exploration with a breezy walk around the perimeter of the fort atop the fortified rampart walls, take in the iconic white lighthouse, and pause to watch local kids leap from Flag Rock into the deep azure waters below. The winding backstreets of Galle Fort are a haven for shopaholics, dotted with boutiques selling colourful clothing, beautiful homewares and memorable souvenirs.
Discover amazing surf points, whale-watching boat rides and a dizzying array of dining options at the nearby beaches of Midigama, Weligama, Mirissa, Madiha and Hiriketiya Bay. Our own town Ahangama has grown into a foodies’ haven with a diverse selection of high-quality eateries and night spots all within a stone’s throw from us.
World famous Yala and Udwalawe National Parks, Singharaja Forest and awe-inspiring waterfalls are within manageable day trips from The Sandhya. Depart your room in the crisp early morning and be back in time for a late lunch or cocktail while taking in the stunning sunset right on our very own Kabalana Beach.
