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.

In 10 years all owners and operators have built hotels, guesthouses, restaurants with shoveltonels to deal with a migratory phenomenon that can be found in Kuta Indonesia, Goa India, Van Vieng Laos, and HIkkaduwa and Ella Sri lLanka. We find the same wooden bar, bamboo and rattan and wi fi, serving beer and redbull, the same trendy new wave restaurants, the same music, the same pizzeria, the same alcoholic and smoky evenings, the same beach boys, touts, scammers with their peroxiderastad rasta strands and their chalouped gaits. Nothing to do with Tourism Arugam Bay is the globalization of the hipster.
Arugam Bay in Sri Lanka is known as surfers paradise and one of the best beaches in Sri Lanka. It is one of those areas in the world you have to visit at least once in a lifetime. I would like to give you one advice you have to take care your self . That area have lot of people who try to cheat you. Hence don’t get caught to the local people. It’s not recommended you to walk around in the beach area after 7.00pm.
Lovely Arugam Bay, a moon-shaped curl of soft sand, is home to a famed point break that many regard as the best surf spot in the country. It's a tiny place, with a population of a few hundred, and everything is dotted along a single road which parallels the coast. So in other words, the epitome of the laid-back beach scene that first drew surfers and sun-seekers to Sri Lanka.
