Our Story....
After travelling the world surfing dreaming of a sustainable life surrounded by beautiful people, offshore waves, sandy beaches, delicious food, breathtaking nature and inspiring wildlife, we arrived in Sri Lanka and never left...

We moved into our eden of relaxation in September 2015 and developed Camp Poe. With the help of of our local Sinhala family and friends from home. We set up 8 luxury tents, a surf hut, yoga shala and renovated the preexisting bungalows and atrium on site. We did this with the environment and local community in mind.

Camp Poe was originally named after the poet Edgar Allan Poe, to inspire creativity and freedom of expression. It has later come to mean "People of Earth," "Protect our Earth," "Peace on Earth" and recently named by one of our guests: "Place of Enlightenment."

We first opened in February 2016 to a camp full of friends and family and celebrated living in Sri Lanka. Our days were full of surfing, yoga, art and music. Over time, news spread about Camp Poe and we welcomed our first guests later that month.

Since then so much has happened here and now we want to share Camp Poe with you! Camp Poe upholds that the best travel experiences are co-created, so we encourage you to get involved with life here as much as possible, whether that may be leaning to surf with us, painting some designs around the camp, leading a class in something or just sharing with us your life and stories!

Looking forward to seeing you soon....

The Surf

The Surf

Sri Lanka's south coast is a paradise found for all surfers. The best waves arrive in October until mid May. From perfect sandy beaches for beginners, easy shore breaks for intimates to great reef breaks for the experienced. There's a perfect wave for everyone.

For level one you are assured to having waves all year round. In the off season, there are still sheltered breaks on offer for the more experienced surfer. The Camp Poe team are surfing all year round and can find fun waves with you!

Surf guides are available, for more information please email us at camppoe@gmail.com

The Yoga

Yoga is a big part of Camp Poe. It is a great way to promote health, vitality and mindfulness.

We run sessions twice a day in our yoga shala set amongst luscious jungle and resident monkeys. Classes vary from Quantum Yoga, Classical Hatha, Slow Flow and Yin. We also run workshops including yoga for surfers and Kirtan chanting.

Camp Poe harbours a collection of yoga and meditation books for you to borrow during your stay.
