Independent Taxi Share

This is the quickest and most comfortable way to travel to Arugam Bay. Be aware though that taxi prices in Sri Lanka are increasing rapidly every year.


For the latest info on taxis and prices see the Latest News post Colombo to Arugam Bay by Taxi 2019.

Taxi Costs

The one way price for a good quality ac minivan with English speaking driver should be $125-$135 depending on whether it is high or low season. Of course there will be cheaper offers available but be aware that many are poorly maintained and the drivers are sometimes lacking in professionalism and reliability.
