Taprobane Island 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. 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.

Taprobane Island sits just 200 yards off the Southern Coast in the centre of Weligama Bay - a 4 ½ hour drive south of Colombo’s International Airport or, for guests wishing to come by 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.

Getting around

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.

Our team can arrange transfers for you by either chauffer driven air conditioned vehicles, steam train or helicopter.

Rather than traveling by road why not transfer directly from your international flight onto Sri Lankan Airlines Air Taxi and arrive in Galle (Koggala airport) in just 30 minutes. Koggala airport is only a 15 minute drive from Taprobane Island.

It is the ideal way to travel in style, comfort and luxury at an affordable price.
