We've just decided to have a last minute holiday to Sri Lanka, a country we've never been, we are a couple and a 9 years old boy, we will be arriving on 18/8 and will be staying one night in Colombo to rest and explore the capital, we would like then to have one week on the beach, me and my son are intermediate surfers, we can surf on our own but not top surfers neither, we are looking for a nice beach destination with decent but not big waves, and somewhere we can rent surf boards too.
I had a look at Hikkaduwa and the place seems to cater for what we want, however, I am worried about the surfing conditions, the rain and about a place we would stay at, due to the plenty of options available, we need some kind of confort and probably some spa facilities near by but not expensive neither, also, we will not be surfing everyday and would need recommendations for things to do with a nine years old boy, I have some questions, I would appreciate if you can answer them.
How is the surf in Hikkaduwa during the last 10 days of august? do we have to travel to surf?
How can we reach Hikkaduwa from our hotel in Colombo? and cost please.
Any suggestions for nice place to stay by the beach, not expensive, near by good and honest surf shop.
suggestion of good seafood restaurants.
Anything travel tip or not to do thing while in Sri Lanka.
any other suggestion or recommendation is welcomed, it is our first visit to Sri Lanka and lloking forward to it.
Thanks & regards
