How to get there
The Arugam Bay Main Point is located around 500 meters past the Baby Point. It is easily found, from the town, simply hit the beach and follow the coast till you see Upali’s Café on your right.
Undoubtedly the cynosure of the Arugam Bay surfing scene, the Main Point is the busiest of all the points. This is because it offers some of the waves and tubes that have all contributed in making it one of the ’10 best places to surf in the world.’ The point can be described as a fantastically easy-to-surf, right-hand wave, breaking over a fairly soft reef at the headland in front of Arugam Bay.
The rush for the Main Point begins on little after dawn, when around 5. 30 hrs, surfers of all ages, shapes, sexes and colours can be seen trudging along the beach with their boards tucked under the shoulder.
Surfing occurs pretty much all the day, with crowds peaking during early morning and late evenings. Many surfers will have a friend or partner film their rides and Upali’s Surf Café, located right in front of the Main Point is the best place to relax and hang out, in this regard.
This café is well suited for the needs of surfers, with everything from snacks and drinks, to lounge beds, sun beds and comfy hammocks. Upali’s is run by Asanka, the reigning local Surf Champion.
