Many of the waves which crash against the Sri Lanka coast have travelled all the way from Antarctica, and not surprisingly there are several excellent surfing sports. The outstanding destination is Arugambay on the east coast, the one place in Sri Lanka with an international reputation amongst surfheads. The low – key south coast village of Midigama is another good spot, while Hikkduwa is also popular. Boards are available to rent at all three places. Surf Lanka Tours at Hikkaduwa, Unawatuna and various places in Auragam Bay arrange surfing trips around the coast, sometimes combined with visites to other attractions. The surfing season runs from April to October at Arugam Bay, and from November at Midigama and Hikkaduwa.
