Arugam Bay is not only a world class surfing spot, but also a quiet place great for snorkeling and diving experiences. Scuba divers should hire a boat and make for the Basses Reefs which is marked by two lighthouses. This area is known as one of the best diving spots in Sri Lanka. This coral reef has two reef complexes stretching out towards the Southern coast to Yala. The underwater delights here are awesome, ranging from clear water, ancient sandstone formations to an abundance of marine life.
