Sion Surf Camp
Reviews (6)
5 out of 5

Sion Surf Camp has an epic beach front location with a cranking reef break right outside #onthedoorstep, enabling you to check the surf from your private balcony in the morning, no trips down to the beach to check the swell required when staying at Sion!
Coming into our 5th season, we are a well established surf camp offering 3 different packages to suit all, with the focus all on Surf & Yoga.
We have a number of different room options over 2 locations to suit everyones preference and budget, ranging from quad dorm rooms to superior doubles, all ensuite. Our dorm and shared rooms are based at our vibrant beach front camp, which also has a few double rooms, while our superior doubles are tucked away jungle side at our peaceful lagoon, only minutes walk from the main camp.
Our vibrant beach front bar and restaurant is the perfect setting for socializing, meeting new friends, watching the waves with an ice cold Lion beer/signature cocktail/healthy smoothie or a freshly ground coffee.
Our restaurant serves up a wide range of eastern and western dishes with both vegan and gluten free options. Our famous Friday nights BBQs are not be missed, offering the freshest seafood etc cooked right in front you eyes, followed by live music/DJs and bonfire.

Location

The camp is located sea front just south of the charming surf town of Ahangama, still pretty local and nestled between the busier spots, Unawatuna and Mirrisa.

Ahangama has a wide range of breaks for both beginners and experienced surfers on your doorstep. From a sandy secluded beach a minute from the villa to the renowned break 'The Rock' 5 minutes north at Kabalanas or the ever popular beach break of Weligama, only 10 minutes to the south.

Best Surf Camp in Sri Lanka!!! Great spot - fun team & people. Thanks so much, Lee & Angi, for being so fantastic hosts giving our family most awesome holiday! We can't wait to be back ... until then we keep on dreaming of daily head-high waves in 36 °C water and loads of surf, SUP, Boogie-Boarding, fun and relax

We recently stayed at Sion Gardens in a lovely room with en suite, hot shower, fridge, kettle and very comfortable bed. Very reasonable rates!!
Its just across the road from one of south Sri Lankas best surf breaks and a beautiful white sandy beach.
Our hosts Lee and Ang are welcoming, friendly and polite.
Id highly recommend Sion Garden as well as Sion surf camp to any surfer, from beginner to advanced.

Very very nice place!! Have not stayed here as surfcamp guest but I've chilled and surfed there for 2 weeks almost every day and felt really welcome! Lovely stuff, lovely owners, great location, great surfspot with good waves for beginner and intermediate and with lots of turtles around. Friday night bbq and campfire has been lovely too. Definitely recommend this place and I'll come back in the future:)

Instructors

Anthony Jones

Ollie Tom

Sri Lanka receives a watered down version of the same swells that light up Indo, but most surfers think it’s flat meaning small crowds and plenty of waves. Combine this with endless jungle-fringed beaches, tropical climate, rich cultural heritage, colourful curries, exotic wildlife and a welcome from the friendliest people you'll meet in the world and you've got the surf trip of a lifetime.

Main Surf Beach: Kabalana Beach, Ahangama
