Arugam Bay is also known as a paradise with the season ranging from May to October. Set at the boundary of breathtakingly stunning sea, calm and ever, Arugam Bay is simply a collection of simple restaurant and cabanas set in the untouched southeast coast. It is the best beach in Sri Lanka to unwind, experience seafood and enjoy a mellow party scene. As the town was affected by the civil war, the roads may be guarded by army personnel stationed at military outposts, however this is only a post war essential and it would be unnecessary to feel threatened. Arugam bay has the best surfing waves in Sri Lanka during the months of April to October. From November to April it is a tranquil place best for relaxation and swimming. At any time of year the surrounding region offers some superb opportunities for viewing birdlife, leopards, crocodiles and elephants as it is just a few kilometers away from Yala National Park.
