Beach is terrific. Only fisherman and locals. You can also surf ( we saw some but we are no surfer). Not much tourism. Very clean. Swimming possible.

Located 20 drive from Arugam bay. Nice surfspot, and has a cool restaurant on the beach where you can relax and have a drink or some food. Spot does get crowded quick. Surfspot is sandy, no reef

Awesome place for some mind relaxation in between 1000's of trees. Fresh fruits and vegetables. A quick meal. An identical place for a private hide out party

We went there to learn surf. It was our first time and the scenery was so beautiful... The spot is safe with only sand under water no reef. Perfect for beginners. We really enjoyed this place.

Good spot for confirmed surfers who expect a good place not crowded. One night per week, amazing party until the sunrise @Sababa's restaurant Take a tuk-tuk and enjoy a perfect day in this isolated beach place.
