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...
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.
Nice place but unbelievable business conduct 🙁 …Hand you old & rusty equipment and charge you way over price in case something breaks. Also took more than an hour to... read more prepare a salad…. Smooth beachside though
This place is a small paradise for all those who seek great food at a wonderful beach combined with excellent service. I spent some very relaxing weeks there and enjoyed... read more the surfing (ideal for beginners - they offer privat lessons to a reasonable price at the surf school nearby) and sunbathing on the brand new sunbeds.
The staff is very kind and more than eager to make you feel like home.
I can highly recommend the pizza - it's the best I tried in Sri Lanka so far - and they even offer vegan options. But also the breakfast, burgers, salads or smoothies are simply amazing - especially when you enjoy them while watching a perfect sunset at Dewata Beach.
Thanks for the wonderful time - I will definitely come again! 🙂
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!
Being in Galle for 3 months the shack soon became my second home.
Great western food with a Sri Lankan touch, nice, helpful staff, decent prices and a beautiful... read more atmosphere!
The view made my burgers taste even better. (Not that they'd need it ;D)
Try the Bloody Mary with your breakfast and the Shack Mule with your dinner.
This is a brilliant place to eat, drink, hang out and meet people. The food is delicious, there's plenty of variety and it's very reasonably priced. The Shack is bang... read more on the sea front, although you would never guess what a lovely beach lies behind the hustle and bustle of Matara Road. We were staying nearby so ended up going there most days and met lots of interesting people, locals too. We really enjoyed the live music.
