Experience Overview

Conquer the terrific waves in Arugam Bay, the hottest surfing destination in the island. The surfing capital has become famous among surfers due to the diversity it provides in terms of its numerous points. Make sure to choose a point based on your experience level. Arugam Bay point is at the tip of the bay, which is considered an advanced point. Peanut Farm and Crocodile Rock are for beginners as the waves are milder and rise to lesser heights. Whisky Point and Pottuvil Point are adjacent to each other. Pottuvil Point too is considered to be a more rough surf and is appropriate for advanced surfers. The waves break quickly at Okanda Point, where the surf is a short ride with great power and less drive. Therefore, Okanda is also ideal for pro surfers.

Managing Expectations

It is important to remember that, whilst they are experts in their field, the people who run or host our experiences are not necessarily used to working in the tourism industry and may not offer the level of service you would find at a five-star hotel. For example, instead of a formal lecture, you may get a relaxed conversation where open discussion is encouraged. All of our hosts are, however, extremely engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about educating visitors about their chosen subject and we have worked with them to ensure that they deliver worthwhile, fulfilling experiences. We welcome feedback, so please let us know what you thought and if you think any improvements could be made to the experiences we offer.
