You can go by bus with a couple of changes.

Pottuvil - Wellawaya (if needed transfer in Monaragala) - Tissa/Hambantota-Tangalle. Hence at least 2 changes, count for about 7-8 hours overall travel time.

All the best,

PS No train anywhere near your route, sorry...

so one bus from pottuvil to wellawaya and then another one from wellawaya to tangalla, right?

Is there any website where can I find a bus schedule?

I don't expect a direct bus Wellawaya-Tangalle. That's why I wrote "Tissa/Hambantota-Tangalle" and "Hence at least 2 changes", the 2nd one in Tissa or Hambantota...

All the best,

I assume this will be the same route with the same changes if we are going from Tangalle to Arugam Bay?

Just for future reference, there is 1 direct bus daily from Pottuvil to Matara which stops at Tangalle. We got it today, leaves Pottuvil at 6.30am, took 5 and half hours to get to Tangalle.
