- The beach offers no land mass until its South Pole and visitors can wade into the sea about 50-80 metres without any trepidations. Combined with the permanently warm crystal clear water, Arugam Bay is one of the best holiday and adventure spots in Sri Lanka. One main singularity that sets it apart from other beach destinations is that it is unaffected by the two monsoons that hit the island from the South West and the North West. The season lasts from the beginning of March to Mid-November, and may get a few rainy days and floods during off-season. However, from mid-November to end of February is when the grass is greener, beaches are less crowded and the accommodation is inexpensive. The weather tends to be a bit chilly than the rest of the months of the season, but visitors may still get a slightsunburn. + The beach offers no land mass until its South Pole and visitors can wade into the sea about 50-80 metres without any trepidations.

  ArugamBay boasts of a rich history, and in the last 25 years, it has grown into a surfing hub attracting surfers from all around the world. The primary fishing village caught the attention of a few American Engineers who were working on the Gal Oya Development Project in the 1950s. Discovery of the surfs encouraged them to make their own surfboards and head out to the sea. However, word of mouth and veterans of Arugam Bay would suggest the surf of Arugam Bay was discovered much earlier than the 50s.   ArugamBay boasts of a rich history, and in the last 25 years, it has grown into a surfing hub attracting surfers from all around the world.
