Arugam Bay is unique.
Arugam is like a tiny island on it’s own.
Just one single road leads into the hamlet. Via a long bridge.
The next bigger towns like Monaragala or Ampara are hours away.
And the approach road is through a dense jungle.
With no houses in between.
The crime rate in the Bay is perhaps the lowest globally:
Everybody knows everyone here.
There are no racial tensions here, either.
Apart from the normal commercial rivalry all groups are basically happy with each other.
This makes Arugam Bay a VERY, VERY safe resort.
Even the long, island wide Civil war never affected AbaY.
There never was a war here !
The climate is also truly amazing:
330 days sunshine/ year !
