Surfing in Sri Lanka
Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, Sri Lanka is a surfer’s paradise you must visit. The most popular spot for surfing in Sri Lanka is Arugambay beach on the south east coast. Located at 314 kms from Colombo, Arugam bay is one of top 10 surf l spots in the world. This spot is popular with beginner and intermediate surfers, with sandy breaks that cushion one’s fall and reasonably sized pipes. For expert surfers, the west coast offers beaches with bigger and more formidable pipes. You can get surfing lessons here at reasonable prices as well. More information visit www.arugam.info
Scuba Diving and Deep Sea Diving
You can obtain a 4-day scuba diving course from a Sri Lankan Professional Diving School by the beach. Beginner divers aren’t allowed to go too deep or range too far, but there are many wrecks around the coast that you can explore comfortably with a guide. Check out the lush Staghorn Coral Reef, Leather Coral Reef, Irrachchal Reef and watch out for the Northern Indian Ocean blue whales as you dive.
