Day 1

Arrive in Arugam Bay

Today you’ll reach the small village of Arugam Bay, with its sun-kissed beaches and seriously good surf.  Your accommodation is in a quiet spot just a few minutes tuk-tuk ride from the centre and overlooking Whiskey Point, one of the best surf spots in the area. You will stay in a traditional ‘Kudil’, a spacious bungalow located on the beach and equipped with A/C, private bathroom, and an outdoor veranda.

The next few days are all about embracing all that Arugam Bay has to offer. For those looking to hit the waves, be it beginner or the more advanced enthusiast, there are a number of excellent spots around with the most renowned being Main Point, Whiskey Point, and Peanut Farm. For those looking for a little guidance, a 90 minute lesson is included in your stay and all levels of capability are of course catered for.

For those who prefer to keep their feet a little drier, there is plenty to keep you busy with a number of national parks and wildlife experiences nearby and easily arranged locally. We would definitely recommend exploring the scenic Panama Tank, home to dozens of wild crocodiles! Back in town, you may fancy a spot of yoga or simply pop your towel down and laze in the sun all day… the choice is yours.

All good things must come to an end and sadly, today it is time to leave your idyllic beach side retreat and head on to your next destination. Fortunately for you, you’re likely to be moving on to either Yala National Park or the peaceful village of Ella, with its breathtaking mountain views, so it’s not all bad!

“There’s nowhere like Sri Lanka. Having travelled all over the country, it wasn’t long before I fell completely in love with its beaches, tea hills, wild rainforest and national parks. Oh, and did I mention the spicy curries? They knocked my socks off!”
