Had a fab time at Talaramba Reef and found the staff to be very helpful. Also enjoyed the Sri Lankan food cooked by Deepani and team a lot. Will hopefully find some time to visit again in the future.

How to get there
Airport: Colombo: 191.0 km
Railway: Matara: 15.0 km
From Colombo airport you have the option of road, train or seaplane. <BR><BR>We can arrange transfers from Colombo by van or car. The journey on the coast road takes 3-4 hours, but the new expressway to Galle cuts the time in half. <BR><BR>Far less stressful than dealing with Sri Lankan roads is the coast train, which takes about 4 hours from Colombo to Matara, and then 15 minutes by road to Talaramba. <BR><BR>Or for a real adventure take the Airtaxi seaplane which leaves Colombo for Koggala Lake every morning. Sri Lankan Airlines offer a free transfer from the airport to the Buddhist monastery on the river, which acts as the seaplane terminal/dock. We'll pick you up in Koggala for the 25 minute drive to Talaramba.
