One of the top surfing areas on the eastern coast. In the proximity of Okanda temple and Kumana National Park.
Just 28 km away from Arugam Bay, a drive through a patch jungle path leads to the Okanda beach, where surfing and encounters with the wild elephants and leopards come hand in hand. Okanda is a point break for regular surfers. There are about three line-ups in Okanda, the last one is ideal for experienced surfers and the front two are for intermediate surfers. However the rocky cliffs standing just next to the waves could be a threat to the amateur. The beaches at Okanda are also ideal for sunbathing and sunset surfing. Okanda is a life time experience.
