Situated in a quite village of Urani,12 km to the North from Arugam Bay and a 10-minutes’ drive from Pottuvil town, Whisky Point is a certain ‘off-the-beaten-track’ laid-back destination. A favorite point break for beginners and intermediate surfing lessons in the locality: no riffs, sandy bottom, an easiest access to the line up ever, safe and fun!
If you’re not into surfing, there are plenty of other activities: endless beach for long walks; huge rocks to climb and enjoy the view; swimming places with a turquoise water – warm and inviting; fascinating village life and wilderness of Pottuvil Lagoon to explore. Even a road from Arugam Bay to Whisky Point is an adventure itself: you can spot elephants and crocodiles in their natural habitat.
Whisky Point is one of those places where you can easily lose track of time: swinging in a hammock, sipping a coconut, listening to the waves crushing in a distance… Days will turn into weeks and the lure of it will make you want to stay here forever.
