Arugam Bay is one of the best places in the world for surfing, and has been a favorite of the long-term community for decades. Located 320 km from Colombo on highway A4, takes almost seven hours to make the drive to Arugam Bay which makes an interesting journey as you pass through an array of zones of the island to reach the final destination.  There are several popular point breaks including Ullah Point, Pottuvil Point, Surf Point, Peanut Farm Point, Surf Point, and Crocodile Rock. `Surf Point’ that breaks at the headland in front of Arugam Bay is suitable for body surfing and beginners. The best surfing in Arugam Bay starts in April and ends in October. If you're a devout surfer looking for the perfect wave or just a tourist looking for the perfect tropical vacation, Arugam Bay is worth considering.
