Aurugam Bay is known the world over as one of the best surfing destinations in the world. Holding a spot on the top ten surfing destinations in the world, Arugam Bay is also a great location for other attractions including checking out the lagoons, and the neighbouring fishing villages, and a plethora of quaint hotels, restaurants, and cafes! Arugam Bay is only 2.5km away from Pottuvil on the East Coast of Sri Lanka; it is also a great location to take in the sunrise! Often during peak season (May- August), you will find A-Bay a popular spot for taking in the sun, sand and surf.
