Simply A Perfect Place To Relax
Hidden behind the hustle and bustle of Dewata enter the world of The Shack Beach Cafe. A great surf beach where you can eat, drink and play. There is fun for everyone...
We stayed at the Shacks AirBnB accommodation, so when we say the food here is great, we know what we are talking about - we basically had all our meals... read more here.
The food is really good and very generously priced. The menu has a lot of different options, you won't leave with bored tastebuds!
The atmosphere is that of a layed back cafe on the beach, where both locals and tourists come.
Some nights they have live music events!
The staff is very friendly and accommodating.
Visited the Shack for breakfast with my wife and sister. Excellent food, I had the shackalaka, and great feel about the place. I've also booked a motorcycle tour and my... read more daughter is looking forward to a surf lesson soon. Bikes, surfing and great food what more could you want? Looking forward to returning to try the main menu before I leave and have to rate the Cafe as my favorite place in Sri Lanka.
Great food. Lot of healthy options and worth the price. Even went out of their way to offer a custom gluten free option for me. A very nice relaxing atmosphere.... read more Best place to surf and and chill ... with the perk of amazing sunsets
we were a group of surfer and we ordered a hamburger. we all got sick from food poisoning. The place is however nice but the kitchens are dirty, the music... read more too loud and kept by three antipathetic English partners with prices too expensive for tourists.
I so loved The Shack, that I had to go back after a little trip to Hiriketiya! I ended up staying in all three accommodations which were very clean and... read more tidy. The Love Shack was probably my favourite and I'll definitely be taking my son with me there next year, but the Beach Shack was also great. What I loved was being able to walk out directly onto the beach, and although the Love Shack had a kitchenette I always ended up eating in the restaurant because it was all so delicious and decently priced! Great smoothies, juices and coffees, brilliant breakfasts...in fact I would recommend every single thing on the menu, which is also kid-friendly. The staff were very accommodating and friendly, and being a solo traveller on this occasion there was always someone interesting around to talk to. Thursday nights are a must with fabulous live music, and in general the location was amazing, set on a stunning beach, perfect for trips to Galle or Unawatuna. The only thing I regret was not learning to surf!
I’m a regular at the Shack being an expat around here. It’s a great spot to just hang back, chill, enjoy great vibe and ofcourse food/drinks. They recently started serving... read more pizza and it’s great, probably the best down south. If you’re looking for a place with a soul and vibe, look no further!
Good beach cafe (also has clothing store and rooms to stay) with the best pizza we’ve tried on the island (try 4 cheeses - they add some cool smoked cheese... read more inside). Also tried some nice seafood snacks. So, if you’re tired of carry, that is the place to visit.
Also it is a good spot if you’re beginner surfer. There is surfing school in few meters. So, you can combine all the good things in one place: surf first, have some nice food and drinks second.
