Situated in Urani, a bit away from Arugam Bay, Whisky Point is an ‘off-the-beaten-track’ spot for novice surfers.
Surfing is definitely the highlight of Whisky Point and is great for beginners and intermediate of the sport. The waves break off a rocky outcrop near the beach, creating perfect surfing conditions. It is also said that the swell can vary from 1–4 metres depending on the direction. This is where surfers can test their skills, as the waves take you towards the beach and you feel the adrenaline rushing through your veins. Waves are guaranteed all season long at Whisky Point because of its unique setup,
If you are not a surfer, don’t worry. Whisky Point is also a decent place for sea bathing and especially long walks along the sandy beach. The rocks on the point make for an awesomely comfortable sofa. You can climb to the top and watch the surfers either around sunrise or sunset. The sunrises here are absolutely amazing and the entire area wakes up, embracing the warmth of the golden sun rays. You can even opt to explore the village through which the road to Whisky Point falls. The villagers are friendly and will be obliged to help out and recommend places to see around Arugam Bay or close by.
