Whiskey Point is actually the name of the surf spot in the village of Urani. The nearest town is Pottuvil which lies to the south about half-way to Arugam Bay.

It is 7km directly north of Arugam Bay but 13km by road. It takes about 20 minutes by tuk tuk, the last few kilometres after leaving the main road are on poorly maintained dirt roads.


The town of Urani is very spread out and not very populated. Apart from the few hotels and restaurants there are no tourist services or facilities apart from the simplest local shop selling basic essentials and very little shade.
