Arugam bay, Arugam bay town, surfing, lagoon

Arugam Bay village itself is not very talkative among locals because it is just a single main road running parallel to the beach, dotted with guest houses, cafes, and shops, including Arugam Bay's trademark. But actually, Arugam Bay is a hidden gem located on the east coast of Sri Lanka. Because it's located 6 hours, 45 minutes (387.5 km) away from the capital of Sri Lanka and other tourist attractions. At present, it has been popular due to its own enjoyably eccentric charm. However, it has managed to retain its small-town charm while gaining popularity among travelers looking to explore some offbeat destinations in Sri Lanka. Especially Arugam Bay is known to be a surfers paradise because it is the best beach in Sri Lanka for surfing. As Sri Lanka is a tropical country, the weather throughout the year is almost alike. The most pleasant season to visit Arugam Bay is during the months of May to September, when the monsoons have descended.
The closest mini-airport to Arugam Bay, Sri Lanka, is Batticalo Airport. Some tourists travel through the sea to such offbeat destinations in Sri Lanka.
