Taprobane Island, Weligama

Centrally located to the UN World Heritage site of Galle Fort, Buddhist temples, rainforests, lowland tea plantations, wildlife reserves and some of the most fabulous beaches in the Indian Ocean.

Access to the island from the coast is usually made by wading through the surf on foot, or by some, on elephant or sedan chair!
