Weligama - වැලිගම

Weligama is one of the best and most untouched stretches of beaches on Sri Lanka's southern coast, creating part of the famous Weligama Bay, besides being a fishing village, Weligama is famous for the history which surrounds its shining star, being the famous Taprobane Island which is located on Sri Lanka's exotic south coast which is quietly becoming the Riviera of choice for the world's most discerning and inquisitive travellers. Taprobane Island sits just 200 yards off the Southern Coast in the centre of Weligama Bay - a 4 1/2 hour drive south of Colombo's International Airport or, for guests wishing to come by sea plane or helicopter, a journey that takes less than one hour. The island is just a 30 minute drive south of the Southern Provinces capital, Galle - home of the historic UN World Heritage site of Galle Fort. 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! Amazingly, there is nothing between the island and the South Pole. Distances between locations in Sri Lanka are not that far, yet the time taken by road to reach a destination can be somewhat of a tiresome experience. (Distance From Colombo : 152 km)
