Arugam bay is the east coast’s most traveller-friendly destination. It’s basically a single laid-back strip of beach accommodation, following the Panama road and backed by the Muslim village of Sinna Ulla.

About 800 families of Muslims, Buddhists, and Hindus live together peacefully here. Arugam Bay’s small size, remote location, and diverse community, plus some of the friendliest locals you’ll ever meet, ensure that you’ll get an authentic taste of the laid-back Sri Lankan coastal village life.

Of course, Arugam Bay’s biggest attractions are its incredible surf spots and stunning stretches of white sand beaches, gaining it international recognition as a premier surfing destination. Arugam Bay Main Point is the best surf spot in Asia, hosting the UK Pro Tour and the international World Qualifying Series. Waves at Main Point are usually six to eight feet regular foot waves. Eight point break surf spots are also easily accessible, all of which have a sandy bottom and shallow water ideal for beginner surfers. The surf season runs from April to October with high tourism season from July to September. Temperatures hover around 30-36 degrees Celsius and the weather is sunny aside from occasional evening rain showers lasting less than an hour.
Arugam Bay is also a great place to unwind, eat seafood and enjoy a mellow party scene. At any time of year the surrounding region offers some superb opportunities for viewing birdlife, crocodiles and elephants. Read more about Arugam bay here…
