The surf point at Arugam Bay is undoubtably one of the best point breaks in the world. Situated on the South East side of Sri Lanka Arugam Bay receives the same Antarctic winter swell's that hit Indonesia in the in the middle of the year. The best time of the year is between May and November when the predominant wind is offshore for at least the first half of the day, due to the south west monsoon and breaks hollow on the rocky reef and sand point.
The wave is long and offers some off the best barrel surfing in the world with two and sometimes three hollow sections which last a lifetime. There is a beach break close to the hotel, which can be fun for body surfing or for beginners. Three of the point breaks "The Point", "Pottuvil Point" and "Crocodile Rock" are within a hour tuk tuk ride from the hotel.
We offer small group surf safaris to find uncrowded surfing breaks and perfect surf points.
