#1 of 12 in Things to do in Arugam Bay
Head for some waves, sun, and swimming at Arugam Bay, one of Sri Lanka's top surf beaches. Ride the tide of the Indian Ocean, which meets with the beach's soft golden sand. If swimming and surfing aren't your thing, retreat to one of the restaurants or beachside guesthouses and enjoy views out over the sea. Natural shade at the beach is minimal, so bring sunscreen and an umbrella if you can. Put Arugam Bay into our Arugam Bay tour itinerary tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
