The Surf Shack is a cozy and unique studio right on the beach, complete with air con, an outdoor lounging area, a kingsize double bed and ensuite bathroom. Its private outdoor area has sunbeds and is directly facing the surf break on Dewata beach. Enjoy all the activities on offer such as surfing, slackline, climbing wall, kayaking and much more. This studio is part of the famous Shack Beach Cafe which serves great food all the day and you will receive a 10% discount on all food and drink.

The space
Dewata beach has the combined benefits of a great surf break, good shopping and its proximity to Galle. For those who are looking for more than just a studio why not check out the Love Shack apartment with its own kitchen. Also if this studio is busy look for The Beach Shack which is also right on the beach.
