Weligama at the south coast of Sri Lanka has three very diverse attractions. First of all, the sandy sweep bay is beloved with beach holiday makers and beginning surfers. Weligama is the beach with best chances to take a photo of stilt fishers. Secondly, heritage tourist can find a small but extraordinarily beautiful and somewhat mysterious rock-cut statue to the north of the town. The Bodhisattva statue is known as Leper King. Last not least, the town of Weligama is famous for a specific handicraft. The art of lace-making, practiced in the regions of Galle and Weligama, is known as Beeralu in Sinhala.
