Glimpse of the Ocean

It is a pleasant relaxing journey from Colombo, inspiring coastal views along the railway line that first reached Galle in 1894 and Matara a year later. This line which covers much of the beach resort areas and Galle (World Heritage City) is a popular means of transport for tourists. The coast line is extremely picturesque, running through golden beaches fringed by palm trees, mangrove-lined lagoons and waves of the Indian Ocean.
