Located 20 min North Of Arugambay.Pottuvil Point is where the ocean, scenic countryside and the peaceful lagoon meet. It’s a somewhat exposed point break, with offshore winds coming in from the west/southwest. The point also receives a mixture of windswells and groundswells, usually from the south/southeast.The best conditions reported for surf at Pottuvil Point occur when a South-southeast swell combines with an offshore wind direction from the West-southwest.
The reef break is hollow, and surf at the sand-bottom point rides on a good south swell, running close to a kilometre towards the shore. In fact, the wave breaks close enough that you can make your way back to point from the shore in a matter of seconds.Surfable waves that hold up well for longer rides in prevailing cross-offshore, offshore or light wind conditions. Though the waves at Pottuvil Point are generally smaller than Arugam Bay’s by a few feet, it still provides good walls. The bigger swells also offer barrels, along with the consistent surf.
