Girl by herself in Sri Lanka... safe?

Hi,

I'm a beginner-intermediate surfer, and I'm considering a 1 month surf trip in Sri Lanka... is this coutry a safe destination for a girl travelling by herself?

P.S. I'm a frequent traveller (South & Central America, Caribbean, Europe) but never been in Asia yet (I know the basic do and don't of a girl travelling by herself!!!).

Thx!

Yes, no problem, really safe if you stay in the Buddhist part, the South of the country : Hikkaduwa to Mirissa. I met some girls travelling alone like you. Super nice people, don't worry. Just try not to walk the street alone at nite or take tuktuk alone, that's what I have been told.
Only the South East around Arugam Bay, I would not really advise it for a girl alone.

Hi people,

I am a lokal from Sri Lanka but I live in Europe.I like to surf so much and I am looking to meet some surfers.I am going to travel to Sri Lanka again in Dezember to March 2011. I want to meet some people there and I also can give help for anybody visiting Sri Lanka for the first time. Please contact me if you want to meet me there and have some good time.
I was traveling a lot the last years through Latin Amerika and Europa and Asia and it was always a great help to meet nice local people and get to know the country with them.

Looking for surf spots in Sri Lanka ?
