We have had two large fishing boats 'parked' on our beach for ever. Every year, in high season, the itinerant fishermen who man the boats arrive in December and fish our waters for three to four months before moving on to their boats in other parts of the island. Sadly, due to the construction of a huge anti-erosion wall on a large frontage of the beach, the fishermen were confounded in 2019/2020 and did not appear.
They are now back. Such good news. We can play 'trip' again when running on the beach and pop down to choose today's freshest fish once they have hauled in the net. You can always help them too! Good start to 2021.25th Jan 2021
The Fishermen are back!
Whilst we are unable to visit, we are thrilled to 'see' that the itinerant fishermen are back on our beach.
The Southern Expressway is now open to within 15 minutes of The Teak House
After a wait of 17 years, we are delighted to let you know that the final section of the Southern Expressway was vested a week ago! It will now take between 2 and 2 and a half hours to travel the 234km from Colombo Airport to The Teak House. It is expressway all the way but the last 15 minutes.
Extending our low season pricing
In light of the terrible impact on tourism since the horrific attacks of Easter Sunday, we have extended our low season pricing across the summer months. There will never be a more affordable time to visit this enchanted isle.
