Regarded as one of the top three surf destinations in the World, Arugam Bay is becoming a favorite of many tourists because it caters to all levels of surfers and its unique calm vibe. Being the venue for an annual international surfing competition, Arugam Bay has evolved into a world class surf spot. The main point is a leading Arugam Bay surf spot, thus the name.
The breaks on the Baby Point part of the beach are suitable for beginners while the steady breaks off on Main Point cater for advanced surfers. The swells at main point are regarded as the highest compared to any other breaks. The breaks range between 2 feet to 6 feet. Its convenient location attracts a huge surfing crowd. On a clear day, the point offers a ride able 400 meter barrel. The reef begins from ankle depth and a full ride through is best ended with a walk back to the beginning point. If you wish to observe more of the action rather than taking part in it, you can chill out at the café run by locals that offers a great view of all that is happening at sea.
