Find and compare 22+ surf camps and holidays in Arugam Bay, Sri Lanka

Arugam Bay is Sri Lanka's surf mecca in the southeast and an international surf destination with waves perfect for all surf levels! The town may get crowded, but that only means that the surfing conditions here are absolutely incredible. Advanced surfers surf the main Arugam break, while intermediate and beginner surfers take a tuk-tuk to the surrounding areas. Sand bottom shores, right-hand breaks, and consistent waves all-year-round are only a few of the reasons every surfer should go to a surf camp here at least once in their lives.

What's the best time to go surfing in Arugam Bay?

With a strong on and off-season due to the dry or rainy season, the best time to surf in Arugam Bay is from May to September, during the dry season. Find the best and biggest waves in July, August, and September, with offshore wind in the morning and a flat onshore wind around sunset. Take in mind that outside of the surfing months, most restaurants and hotels are closed.

What's Arugam Bay like after surfing?

Arugam Bay’s nightlife is well-known in the area for its crazy parties and reggae parties. As alcohol tends to be expensive in Sri Lanka, avoid big expenses by (pre)drinking the local Arrack before or at events - but drink responsibly. Visit Whiskey Point on Fridays, Mambo’s on Saturdays, or The Beach Hut on any other nights. In Arugam Bay, you’ll find most restaurants in the main street of town, where you can point out your fish to be prepared. During the day, you can grab a quick bite, like a banana pancake or veggie roti, on any corner of the street. One of the surfer's favorite places to meet is The Beach Hut, serving filling and tasty dishes for just $3-4.
