Arugam Bay

Arugam Bay is a surfer’s paradise, located on the eastern part of Sri Lanka just over 300 kilometers from the city of Colombo. The little bay is best accessed either by car or bus from Colombo, although the bus journey will not be very easy for inexperienced travelers.

Most people who make their way to Arugam Bay do so because of the incredible breaks and waves that are known to frequent this bay, and Arugam Bay Wave Surfing is a very popular activity among visitors to this area. However, one does not need to be a surfing enthusiast to enjoy the beauty of Arugam Bay. Beaches like Pasarichenai Beach, and local attractions like Elephant Rock and Lahugala-Kiulana National Park make it easy for everyone to enjoy this beautiful paradise.

Accommodations in Arugam Bay include a lot of modest guesthouses right on the beach, perfect for a relaxing beach getaway.
