Arugam Bay is a magical place, when it's in season (roughly June to September). It offers perhaps the best surfing in Sri Lanka but is also a great place for hanging out, dining, biking, etc. The only catch is that it's mega-far - at least 6 hours, but probably closer to 7 or 8. If you're going there, it's good (and easy) to stay for a while.
This Facebook group has fast become one of the best places to find or sell quality furniture. Also a place for the exchange of puppies, property, etc.
&Co is a new pub and restaurant tucked in the Steuart Hotel behind Dutch Hospital. They serve up good, hefty pub fare in a spacious setting.
