Arugam Bay

Arugam Bay is a serene palm-rimmed village of simple restaurants and cabanas set in the untouched southeast coast, located in the dry zone part of the island. It is often referred to as a surfer’s paradise and has some of the cheapest holiday resorts in Sri Lanka. It is a great place to unwind, eat seafood and enjoy a mellow party scene. At any time of year the surrounding region offers some superb opportunities for viewing birdlife, leopards, crocodiles and elephants as it is just a few kilometres away from Yala National Park.
