World Class Waves in Arugam Bay
The main surf point at Arugam Bay is one of the best point breaks in the world.
In season, Arugam Bay provides a consistent perfect 2-5ft waves sometimes breaking at 6-8ft on a good swell chart.
The wind is predominately offshore all day, due to the south west monsoon and breaks hollow on the rocky reef and sand point from May through to September.
The wave is long and offers some great barrel surfing with two and sometimes three hollow sections which last a lifetime.
We recommend that beginners use Baby Point (Arugam Bay), Pottuvil Point, Peanut Farm or Whiskey Point. You can hire a tuk tuk from Galaxy with a safe and reliable driver. We can recommend the best places to hire surfboards and good surf instructors.
