Jaffna Islands

Sum up

The Jaffna islands are fascinating to explore. Spend a day out at Delft Island with its small village homes, wild horses that roam the plains, and ruins of a Portuguese Fort. Nainativu Island is easier to access and is home to the ancient Nagadeepa Buddhist temple and the Naga Pooshani Ambal Hindu temple.

Duration: 3 hours

Best Time: Year-round

Additional Information

The boat used to reach Delft Island is a public ferry, operated by the Sri Lankan government. Whilst we are assured of its safety, the ferry does not have particularly comfortable seating and it can get quite humid when you are on board. Passengers on the ferry can be loud, but this is all part of the experience of travelling on a local ferry. The journey will take 45 minutes each way. Please do mind your step when you get in and out of the ferry. Very occasionally there are too many people waiting for the ferry and you may have to wait for the next one which departs approximately one hour later.
