Ahangama is just 20km from Galle on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Until the tragic bombings on Easter Sunday this year, it seemed the country was moving at an unstoppable pace when it came to attracting the world to its tea gardens and gorgeous coast—and Ahangama was at the center of the action. A surfer’s paradise, you could see beach clubs and little cafés mushrooming, fresh signboards proliferating and the tell-tale arrival of young foreigners who choose to stay for months or perhaps a few years. The attacks cast a shadow over the island nation, but thankfully, there are signs of recovery already. My advice is to book now and support the process.
