Things To Do
Just in front of Lighthouse Beach Hut is the Lighthouse surf point from which it gets its name. Once a closely guarded secret, Lighthouse Point is slowly becoming popular among surfers, not only due to the waves, but also the lack of crowd. A right hander for intermediate surfers, the break is ideal between mid-July and September. A 15-minute walk northwards will bring you to Green Point, another surf point that is also growing in popularity.
Supported by the thriving mangrove forest and lagoon, this rich ecosystem is teeming with wildlife, ranging from crocodiles to peacocks to pelicans and occasionally, the rare elephant. A Pottuvil lagoon tour is sure to give you a glimpse of many rare and colorful animals in their natural habitat as you navigate through the lagoon. The tours are managed by local fishermen.
Nestled behind Pottuvil are the remains of this once-magnificent shrine that dates back over 2000 years. Although time has witnessed the erosion of this temple, as historical artifacts have been buried under sand dunes, it is still holds some of its mystic allure, making it a worthwhile attraction on your trip to Arugam Bay.
