Garden

Looking for a cozy and fun space on your doorstep? This is what they can offer you here at Arugam Bay Surf Camp. They are so lucky to be situated just next to the biggest surf spots on the East coast and to have the space to kick back and relax in the center of Arugam Bay town. Giving you the best of both worlds.

Program

You will do surfing once per day (except the day of arrival and departure). Yoga is available every day. The instructor-to-student ratio for surfing lessons in this surf camp sticks to an upper limit of one-to-three instructor-to-student ratio. Also, it is important to note that this surf camp does not mix ability levels. Therefore, you will feel more comfortable with your instructions. You will get to keep all of your surf photos and video footage as this surf camp believes that it is your right to have them.

This surf camp will dropbox you the images and videos once they are processed, usually 30 days after your departure. This comes free of charge with the surf camp packages. It is not a must to be able to swim to learn surfing, but it will be an advantage to feel confident in the water and maximize your progress and enjoyment. Surf coaching will start at 7:00 a.m. every day.

Location

Fancy taking a step into the wild, whilst keeping your comfort? You can enjoy the beauty of the wildlife, just a drive away from the Eastern coast of Arugam Bay. The camp is situated just a five-minute walk away from one of the many beaches in Arugam bay where you can catch the waves, do some swimming, relax and sip some fresh coconut. If you are looking to disconnect and re-center yourself, sunset yoga classes should hit the spot. The great vibes flowing through the camp, the short distances to the best Eastern surf points, and the most beautiful landscapes make Arugam Bay the place to be in Sri Lanka.

Arugam Bay

Originally known as “Arugam Kudah”, the town itself is a historic settlement of the ancient Batticaloa Territory. A small fishing town in East Sri Lanka, Arugam Bay very quickly grew into the main surf point of the East and now thrives thanks to a lot of surfer tourists. Arugam Bay Surf Camp is located in the bay of Arugam Bay, a quiet corner of busy Arugam Bay beach. Surrounded by palm trees and fine sand it forms a stunning crescent beach, making it the perfect getaway for everyone.

Besides the stunning beaches, you will be able to see plenty of Sri Lanka’s landscapes in just a short travel from the camp. You can also observe the rich wildlife in Arugam Bay, such as elephants, buffalo, peacocks, etc. One of the best areas for exploring is a short drive away.

Food

During your stay at camp, you will be able to enjoy your daily breakfast and dinner included in the price. Arugam Bay Surf Camp knows how important good food is for the soul.
