Hi Clucky,

Nearest is Kalutara North (or maybe even a smaller town north of it). This one has only semi-local trains to Colombo, around 8 per day with the peak in the morning rush hour.

Better is Kalutara South (just a slightly longer tuktuk ride, even North station is not really walking distance from the resort hotels like Mermaid). In addition to the semi-local trains, which take 90-120 mins, it also has 8 express trains per day to Colombo taking 75 mins.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
