The Salty Pelican Yoga & Surf Retreat Reviews

Location and Contact


• We can book you a very comfortable and direct air conditioned car/van transfer from the airport straight to The Salty Pelican. The driver will be waiting at the arrivals gate with your name on a sign. All road tolls and toilet breaks are included in the journey. Please send us an email with your flight details including flight number, so we can confirm your transfer and price.
• Journey time: 3 Hrs *
• A scenic delight… The journey is mostly along the coast, with open sea views for the majority of the way. There will be a few sellers selling water, fruit and delicious snacks on the way but the Colombo to Matara train will most probably be full. You may find it a very uncomfortable 3.5 hour journey standing on a crowded train after a long flight.
• On the Colombo - Galle - Matara train route, virtually all seats are unreserved so pre-booking is neither necessary nor possible, which means you cannot book a seat unfortunately. Tickets are only sold on the day at the ticket office. Tickets cannot sell out though.
• - Start your journey from either Colombo Fort Railway Station or from Maradana Railway Station.… It’s where the train from Colombo to Galle starts. You are much more likely to get a seat boarding at Maradona Station (although it’s still not guaranteed).
• Airport - Colombo/Maradana Taxi Journey time: 40 minutes
• Taxi price: Approximately 2800 rupees ( €13 )
• Colombo - Matara Train Journey time: 3.5 Hrs
• Ticket price: 130 - 420 rupees ( €2 )
• Matara - Salty Pelican Tuk Tuk Journey time: 35 min
• Tuk Tuk price: Approximately 1000 rupees ( €5 )
