Baby Point

The best first approach to surfing. This ideal spot for beginners asks for a swell so that waves form. It is also one of the best places to take a dip in the ocean… so do not be disappointed if you do not find any waves and enjoy a good swim.

Peanut Farm

This spot is the best second approach to learn how to catch waves. You will need to go there by tuk-tuk or by bike. The waves are amazing for beginners… so amazing that it became more and more popular and can be quickly crowded.

Peanut Farm is also known for its unbelievable sunset. On your back pay attention to the road, a lot of wild animals like elephants are living in the area. 




Elephant Rock

This 15 min ride south is a handsome place to stand all afternoon. Besides its good waves’s beginners, it is a very beautiful spot to enjoy the beach or climb the rock. 

Less crowded because of its difficult access, you will need to walk and climb to enter the beach. Grab a picnic and some comfortable shoes and prepare to improve your surfing skills. 

Pottuvil Point

This spot is situated in the town next to Arugam Bay is the more local surf spot that you can go to.  This stunning point is where the ocean, scenic countryside and the peaceful lagoon meet together.
