For those of you looking to cut your travel time short, Cinnamon Air offers exclusive charter flights from Bandaranaike International Airport or Colombo to Batticaloa, a town located 146km up the coast from Arugam Bay. The flight would take just under 1 hour and we can arrange for you to be picked up by van from there and brought down without a hassle. Just let us know when you will be arriving.
Ella is the closest town to Arugam Bay that can be reached by train. Expo-rail runs a luxury service daily from Colombo direct to Ella, a long day on the train but one is rewarded with some of the most breath-taking scenery the island has to offer. For those arriving from the hills there is also a train that runs daily from Kandy (Peradeniya) to Ella. We are more than happy to arrange transport by van once you arrive from Ella to Arugam Bay. Ella is 132km away from Arugam Bay.
Overnight buses run daily from Colombo to Akkaraipattu. There is a private luxury service that departs from Colombo at 20:30 and arrives in Akkaraipattu at 03:30 the next morning, tuktuk will be available from Akkaraipattu to Pottuvil at that time. There is also a public bus that leaves Colombo at 22:30 and arrives directly in Pottuvil at 06:00 in the morning. Inquire with us and we will furnish you with further details.
Island-wide pick up by van can be organized, which ensures plenty of space for large families, extra baggage such as surfboards and comfort. Just let us know where and when you will need to be picked up and we will organize the rest.
