Ampara | Okanda Beach

Okanda Beach

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 is for intermediate surfers. However the rocky cliffs standing just next to the waves could be threat to the amateur. The beaches at Okanda are also ideal for sunbathing and sunset surfing at Okanda is a life time experience. 

Okanda-Kudumbigala region is the first Heritage Conservation Zone or a sacred grove of the country, where traditional laws shall take precedence over modern laws. Sacred groves are operated under the patronage and guidance of the villagers themselves as the custodians of the living tradition.
