Situated within the environs of Urani, just few meters from our Cabanas, a 10 minutes drive from Pottuvil town, 25min from Abay and few steps from our Resort, this stretch of beach is quiet and undisturbed – in stark contrast to its neighbour, Arugam Bay. There are no boats or other contraptions to be seen, leaving the entire place to the surfers.
It is a right-hand point break, which works well even if the Main Point is flat and can guarantee waves all year round. The size of the waves range from 2 ft to 6 ft. Surfers do not have to swim out very far to catch some waves, as they break somewhat close to the beach. The waves are not harsh but it may take a while to get a good wave coming along. For those who are getting back into the water after some time to regain their confidence, this is exactly the place to go.
Whisky Point is the best place on the Island for amateurs and those learning to surf for the first time. Advanced surfers come too – there’s something for everyone here!
