Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We travelled there as a family on recommendation. But unless you are backpacking, I wouldn’t bother! In saying that we did eat at a couple of good restaurants.
There is rubbish everywhere, the black sludge that smells in the streets, runs out onto the beach where everyone learns to surf.
There are sand flies galore so ensure you are wearing insect repellent when at beach
or when walking on damp ground or grass.

Beautiful vistas and fun surfing community but so much pollution and garbage. Black stinky sludge oozes to the water from under two road bridges. Garbage piled under trees. Fish heads and tails. Walking east along the entire length of the beach we had to be careful not to step on broken glass, bottle tops and decaying metal cans. Plastic waste (bags and bottles were on the beach and half-buried in the sand. Fishing lines tangled in mounds. Plastic bottles and food wrappers strewn throughout It was shocking and awful to see up close. However, from a rooftop restaurant , at a distance, the beach is beautiful and the surfing vistas are stunning.

Weligama is a small town on the south coast of Sri Lanka. Its name translates to ‘sandy village’, a testament to its wide golden sandy beaches. Over the years Weligama has gained popularity and slowly transformed itself from a small fishing village to a booming tourist spot and today it has secured itself as a top surfing destination. Good place to relax and surf with chill beer.......

weligama has some lovely features. surf and sand. unfortunately a busy road runs next to the beach and there are many closed down businesses which create a sad ambience. surf and board hire great except for two days terrible oil slick all along the sea, making it brown and slimes

This beach is covered in litter, it's very sad to see such pollution. It is also right next to a busy main road..very noisy & smelly. The water was also extremely brown & dirty at times. I had accommodation booked here for a few days, but ended up catching the bus to Mirissa each day where the beach is much less polluted.

The beach is quite far from colombo, approimately 2hrs south of Colombo. Unfortunately, when we went the tide was going out, so our son who was surfing had a struggle to get good waves. There is a number of places on the beach to rent boards, but be careful as we saw one couple get charged because a board fin came off (the board was old and already repaired previously for the same). There are stands for drinks but otherwise a typical sandy beach.
