It's not easy, but any of the surf bungalows in Arugam Bay can assist you. You will need to take a TukTuk from Arugam Bay or Pottuvil and go with someone who knows where they're going. Then you'll have to walk (in the heat) for about 10 minutes to the point.

 Informations supplémentaires

High tide is out, unless the swell is killing it. If the wind is onshore at Arugam Bay then give it a try, but don't be surprised if everyone else has the same idea. Need 4-wheel drive to get in otherwise a 500 metre walk and as there is no 4-wheel drives available to us it is the latter option.

Atmosphère

Pottivul is a great little wave that peels mechanically over sand banks around a Byron/Pass-like point. It breaks very close to the beach as it winds its way down the point and it is easy to step off, almost on to the dry sand, at the end of the wave and run back out to the take off. Great for 20-30 second nose rides.Very fast and even barreling wave in the mid section. The wave breaks right along the shore, so just get out and walk back. Hide your gear well around the rock, locals (invisible) like to borrow you things. If you're lucky enough to check on of those epic sunsets you'll remember it for life.

Pottuvil Point - great location - One of the best places in the island. Great place to surf. The property could be developed and has great value.

Pottuvil Point is for Sale - Yes, a low density development of holiday homes and a small hotel is being built at the Point. Land is for sale here. Check it out at www.lankarealestate.com

can be ok - Pottuvil point can get ok and can be fun but when i was there two years ago it never really got better than average for two months and this was during the 'on season'Its a beginners wave to be honest. I cant really see it getting that good ever and post tsunami its supposed to be out of action with all the sand and rocks shifted everywhere.Sorry to bear bad news but i reckon theres better places to travel to for your efforts.As i said can be ok but it wont ever blow your mind.
