Whiskey Point is an offbeat holiday destination for people of all ages, those who are interested in surfing will have a great time battling the raging waves while those who aren't into surfing can enjoy the other activities. The place is also surrounded by many hotels, spas and resorts that offer a laid back and relaxing experience to the guests.
People don't seem to know the exact reason it is called Whiskey Point. Some people say that the name originates from the Tamil term 'Whiskey' which means swirling. This name fits the description as the water in this region often seems to be whirling, which makes it suitable for surfing. This beach is in contrast to its close neighbour, Arugam Bay Beach, as it is hushed and you wouldn't see any boats going out from this area.
