from negombo to Alankuda (Kalpitiya)

Hello everyone. On january me and my wife will go to Sri Lanka and we plan to spend the first couple of days chilling by the beach in Alankuda. We were wandering what would be the best way to get from either Negombo or Colombo to Alankuda or nearby it.

thanks,

Roberto

From Negombo: taxi 3.30-4 hours and Rs 13,000. Bus (or partly train) with transfer in Puttalam 5 hours, cost peanuts.

Yes we stayed early April on west side of peninsula. Great weather and great dolphin tour. January is even better weather there (less wind).
