We spent a wonderful afternoon here.
The tuna was absolutely delicious and the beer served in chilled glasses... this always makes me happy.
The toilets were very clean too, which is always nice.
There are sun loungers and umbrellas on the beach that are free to use as long as you're eating/drinking; something that's everywhere in India, but surprisingly less so here in Arugam Bay. Perhaps that's because we visiting are out of season.

After 8 months of travelling this was a favourite beach hang out. Try it, you really have nothing to lose.

I think we spent most of our stay in Arugam at Friends indeed ;) During the day, the lounge chairs, parasols and good lounge music were perfect. Not to forget the delicious drinks (passion fruit mojito!!) and the cutest dog ever! And at night, the live guitar and singing was perfect. Staff was super friendly too. A great place indeed ;) Just a tip: help them keep count of your tab just to make sure there aren't any mixups after a full night of fun and drinks.
