Elephant Rock, Arugambay

Another Surf Break point near Arugambay!  

A 15min. tuk tuk ride to the south will leave you with a twenty minute walk along another beautiful beach to reach Elephant Rock.It is a beautiful spot for a day surf mission.

Elephant Rock is the smallest of the three surf break points and you may need a medium to large swell for Elephant Rock to work at all. When the main Point is 6 foot then Elephant Rock will be 3 foot.

It is however a perfect wave for the beginner / intermediate or long board enthusiastic. A suckey take-off section over sand leads on to a long wall that breaks right down the point for about 400 meters much like inside Pottuvil Point.

Bring sufficient drinking water and make sure that your tuk-tuk driver is there to pick you up after a session and a cool walk back around the rock.
