To get to Arugam Bay from Ella we shared a driver with a lovely couple from the Netherlands. The drive took around 2.5 hours of busy roads and over taking many tuk tuks, cars, truck and busses on blind corners making quite the stressful ride! However, we made it! We noticed the difference in the temperature immediately Arugam Bay is much hotter than Ella and Kandy.
We decided to stay at The Long Hostel in a private room with AC, thank god! The beach is very pretty with lots of colours from the local fishermans boats lined up along the waters edge.
