Surfing in Arugam Bay on the South East Coast
Location:Arugam Bay
Listed as one of ten top surf spots in the world, Arugam Bay is a popular youthful haunt for surfers and holiday makers during the surfing season. 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; Pottuvil Point situated on a deserted beach north of Arugam Bay is more suitable for experienced surfers; and Crocodile Rock another challenging surf point is located south of Arugam Bay. Waves of up to 5-6ft and up to a 400 metre `ride’, the relatively isolated beaches and simple, laid-back lifestyle, away from the main tourist haunts, are a major attraction to surfers.
