Want to know where to go on a surf trip with your significant other? Sri Lanka – widely considered the best surf destination for travelling couples – is rapidly becoming one of Asia’s top surf destinations for those who wish to balance their vacation in the interest of both partners.

The South of Sri Lanka has on offer waves ideal for both the novice and pro alike, boasting long and slow breaking reefs as well as barreling A-frame beach breaks. This tropical escape will quickly turn into a cultural experience for its ancient history, stunning old architecture and spectacular tea farms.

Tucked in the jungle along white sandy coastlines are charming cafes serving up smoothie bowls, gourmet meals and fresh juices. The surf scene is very closely compared to Bali somewhat 30 years ago with chic bars and restaurants, modern accommodation and spas popping up in front of surf breaks. It has something for everyone from beachgoer to adventurer and the best part about it is that this paradise is still relatively unexplored, full of hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
