(3.2/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Arugam Bay represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Arugam Bay itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • Besides being also found travel feature. Walking along its entire length it is possible to encounter seeds fishing villages and areas in which you collect the premises with families. All the bars/restaurants and hotels overlooking the sea are not exaggerated or inconsistent with the nature and provide good food and refreshment in the media.
