Visitor Reviews of Arugam Bay
“If your after quality wave you can do better than Arugam Bay. The surf is flat or small most of the time and more suited to beginners. Expensive place to get to and to stay. Lots of beginners on big soft top boards with no idea so expect to be run over run into and dropped in on!! Lots of other places have waves in July without the gumbies on foamies and are easier and less expensive than Arugam.”
