Hi! I was there in Dec/Jan 2012 and best place to surf and have fun is Hikkaduwa.:) You can check also Arugam bay.
If you decide for Hikkaduwa- go to Reef end surf school  (Ari) and try to get top of the top accomodation for little money (really clean, nice, great breakfasta and location) at Tandem guest house! Me and my boyfriend loved that place:) In the evening for a dinner or a beer go to Top Secret! You will enjoy it:))))
Have fun,
Nina

Sri Lanka is a tropical country, you can expect the rain anytime of the year in most parts. However, the two major rainy seasons are North-East monsoon (October to January) and South-West monsoon (May to July).

There are lots of short trips like Yala Safari to Watching whales which all are adventurous. If you like to go with Yala safari in Sri Lanka, then you will be able to see some extraordinary experience with the animals as well as migratory birds.

Hey Josephine - I'm planning on heading to A Bay end of July/Aug.. if you'll still be around... I'll be on a solo mission - and ready to tackle any Israelis who I've heard like to cause stress in the surf (no offense to those who have manners) :)

You can go to Sri Lanka is the beauty of glorious gold sand with ancient monuments. You can stay to spend luxury holidays for bit of fabulous culture, beauty of scenario. Kandy is the best place, major spot of watching whales and dolphin in Dec, Jan, April months with sightseeing.

The Arugam Bay

Sri Lanka is a great place for surfing and has been a popular surf destination since the 1970s. The main attraction is Arugam Bay on the remote East Coast, one of the world’s 10 best surf points. The Arugam Bay surfing season runs from July / August and dedicated surfers, who know these waves well, return each year to experience the thrilling waves and the relatively secluded beaches.
