Sri Lanka Beaches
Further east, 314 km from Colombo, in the Ampara district is a most beautiful bay good for surfing. Arugam Bay is a fishing village with a wide, sweeping beach in front of the village itself that has a low promontory and is good for swimming. The East coast offers unlimited possibility for many kinds of water sports and underwater photography.
The many ship-wrecks of the coast are a tempting challenge to many divers.
