Week 2 in Sri Lanka by Rebecca Plant

November 23, 2015 | WECare in Sri Lanka

My second week in Sri Lanka was a bit more hard hitting than the first.

We named her Saffy! Somebody had thrown boiling water all over her back and neck. She was very weak and her back was a mess,…

Update from Rebecca Plant RVN – Week 1 in Sri Lanka!

November 12, 2015 | WECare in Sri Lanka

Life is very different to the North East here. For a start the driving is…

Big Game Camp prides itself on being Eco and environmentally conscious which is…

The ‘trenders’ travel from far and wide in pursuit of temple quiet spa, prepped for holistic massages and a serene 20 meter pool… all in a sleek minimalist package. Nestled on the foreshore of the Talalla Retreat grounds are our newest accommodation villas boasting expansive views of tropical gardens and blue waters…

When is the best season to surf in Sri Lanka?

June 26, 2014 | Sri Lanka, Surf

SEE FULL ALBUM We always get asked, “When is the best surf in Sri Lanka?” A common misconception is that there is no surf on the south coast during the April to October months. Here at Talalla Surf Camp, we know the truth! We have perfect waves for beginners and intermediate surfers – + without the crowds ALL YEAR ROUND. How lucky are we!
