Pottuvil Point

Small, hollow right-hand reef break about 6km north of Arugam Bay. Pottuvil Point is a playful right-hand, sand-bottom point and on a good south swell, the wave begins up the point and can run close to the shore for almost a kilometre. The wave breaks so close to shore that you can simply step off onto the sand and run back around the point. Pottuvil Point is generally a few feet smaller than Arugam Bay but still offers some nice walls and barrel sections on bigger swells. It is even rideable at one foot on a longboard.
