Very nice beach. Well populated. Great waves and soft sand. During my 10 day island stay, I went to Brown's beach in Negombo and Bentota beach. This beach was more enjoyable. Only downside are the vendors.

The best thing to do early morning is to go for a jog/walk through the beach all the way to the right, and it goes on for about 3 to 4 kilometres. Beach run or beach walk is real fun and very tough for those...More

This is a nice beach, but there is not much to do (at least in low season). The main public beach itself can be a bit crowded, with the hotels and locals combined. However, if you walk far from the main location, towards the resorts,...More

Arugam Bay would be better at that time. The East Coast has better weather then. West coast has rains and rough seas. We are here now and it’s beautiful with good surfing.

It’s the beginning of their rainy season so take a light jacket. Hot and humid, just light linen clothing will do. Enjoy the seafood!
