Arugam bay is known to have perfect fun right handers that rarely get above head high, so it's perfect for intermediates and beginners. It is one of Sri Lankas best reef breaks.

Waves are super fun so you will use a mix of a fish or a small wave board along or a shortboard for the bigger swells that might come in.

Slightly southwards around the point of the town is Arugam Bay reef break. This reef is a consistent, small wave that creates both rights and lefts over deep reef and is quite a mixed bag in that it can produce mushy waves close to shore that are excellent for gaining balance and practicing your pop up, while also forming faster, clean waves out back that are ideal fun waves for intermediates to advanced surfers.

In contrast to the South West, where a multitude of spots are dispersed along the coast, the best surfing in the South East is all centralized in the vicinity of Arugam Bay. This means you can set yourself up in the town without having to think about packing any time soon.

Even uncrowded breaks are within a short tuk-tuk trip of the bay. Ten minutes from Arugam Bay are Crocodile and Elephant Rock, each wave caters for a different style of surfer.

Elephant Rock is a beautiful, serene spot for beginners while Crocodile Rock can be powerful and challenging.

The additional beauty of these spots is their remoteness, being situated on a stretch of beach largely populated by wildlife rather than people. There is also a Buddhist temple a short 5KM journey away that is well worth the visit, and just a snapshot of the islands ancient Buddhist culture.
