What is the best time to visit Arugam Bay?

The weather at Arugam Bay is mostly sunny all year round, making the location extremely favourable for beachside vacations. The best time to visit Arugam Bay is typically in April to September, during which the waves are at their peak, enticing surfers from all parts of the world. Also, the rainfall, although a tad unpredictable, is generally low at this time of the year. If you’re planning a visit to Arugam Bay for merely surfing and the parties, despite the crowded beaches, the months of June to August are the most appropriate.

The off-season usually ranges from November to March. During this period, the beaches are less packed, and the waves are smaller, which makes the off-season an excellent time to learn surfing. Unfortunately, many beachfront hotels and restaurants are closed throughout these months, prompting tourists to look for accommodations elsewhere.
