Things To Do In Arugam Bay
Surfing : Arugam Bay is renowned for its fantastic waves, which attract surfers from all over the world. Although you can surf here all year round, the most favoured season is from April to October with the average height of waves being 1.5 to 2.5 meters. Main surf spots are Pottuvil point, Main Break and Crocodile Rock.
Dive : You can enjoy diving and snorkelling around Arugam Bay. If you are a serious scuba diver, you can charter a boat and head for the Basses Reefs, which is a “must see” dive site in Sri Lanka.
Wildlife : Catch the rare spectacle of elephants strolling across the A4 through the Lahugala elephant corridor. The best time to catch a glimpse of wildlife such as these gigantic elephants, wild boar, deer and crocodiles is before dawn or at sunset.
Bird Watching : Be over-awed by the flocks of birds that migrate to the Arugam Bay area in the months of November and December.
