Colombo to Weligama by Bus

We would recommend you get a minivan transfer or the train because the bus can take 5 hours from Colombo Bastian Mawatha Bus Station. However, it is worth looking into if you could still be waiting around for a train connection in Ratmalana.

It can be challenging to carry surfboards on a bus, which makes travelling minivan a better option, especially if you’re heading towards the Weligama-Midigama area as the bus stops past Weligama in Matara and you have to then double back.
