The Point

This is the main break at Arugam Bay. The Point is a long right-hand point/reef break that breaks at the headland in front of Arugam Bay. It is also the best swell magnet of all the points and you can almost always guarantee that the The Point will be a couple of feet bigger than any of the other breaks. It breaks from anything between 2 and 6 feet but tends to max out after 6 feet. Due to its location, it also attracts the biggest crowd, but seems to accommodate it as it often sections in a few spots. On a good day, it provides a clean ridable wall that will barrel in the sections and give you a 400-meter ride right through to the inside. There is also a café run by locals that provides a grant vantage point to watch the action from and to help stock up on energy for your next ride.
