Beach View, Arugam Bay

Great, cheap food and the best accommodation right on the beach. Very close to the surf spots! You will love the friendly host family who will look after you. Your room and belongings are safe—feel as safe as you are at your own house. Welcome to our place.

Beach View was originally our humble home in Arugam Bay and we have been hosting guests since the 1970's. Over the years Beach View has expanded as we built private guest rooms plus a restaurant. Set among a green and shady garden, the rooms are cooler than most others in Arugam Bay. They face the ocean and Arugam Bay's famous right hand surf break, Main Point.

Enjoy free Wi-Fi, kick back and relax in a hammock or enjoy a fresh cold juice in the restaurant. 

Send us an email at to book surfing day tours, jungle safari tours or a night of camping on the beach or in the jungle.
