Head off to Arugam bay, another beach destination popular for surfing. You can rent surf equipments and ride the waves. The best time to surf is from May to September. Arugam Bay is also listed as one of the top ten surf points in the world. If you’re not a surfer, there are plenty of other things to do! Oceanside restaurants and a mellow, swing-another-day-in-a-hammock kind of vibe that’s totally removed from the brash West coast beach resorts. Lie by the beach and enjoy this moon-shaped curl!
Day 07/08 Galle
Leave the east coast and head to Galle. The seaside town of Galle is 116 Km away from Colombo down the south coast of Sri Lanka. A city of trade and, increasingly, art, its historic Fort area is crammed full of little boutique shops, cafes and hotels owned by local and foreign artists. Just wandering the old walls and streets at random yields one architectural surprise after another as you explore the amazing collection of structures dating back through the centuries. Its glories have earned the Fort a status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Don’t miss out the stilt fishermen in Koggala!
