About the neighbourhood
A tranquil setting but close enough to the buzz of the Hikkaduwa strip. The villa is based in the village of Thiranagama off Pinkanda Road on the Galle Fort end of the Hikkaduwa township. Easily accessible by train or bus. Express train from Colombo takes just 1 1/2 hours and we can meet you at station.

A great base to surf or snorkel at the famous Hikkaduwa beach, visit the World Heritage listed Galle Fort, go whale watching or go on a river boat safari. Visit the turtle hatchery or nearby temples or just chill in many of Hikkaduwa's bars and restaurants.
Getting around
The surf beach is 1km away and there are restaurants and bars in that area. There are many tuk tuks that service the area.

We can organise transport if required for day trips or airport pickup/dropoff.
