  • It took us an hour to get to the harbor. We were told a boat would go at 8 - which it didn’t. We had to wait until 9:30. The boat was packed full. The sea was terrible and the water came into the boat...  more »
  • The approach from Jaffna is a bit bumpy, the crossing by ferry is a real adventure and even with light seas not for the faint-hearted. We were very lucky, because we were allowed to board the extra chartered boat with a group of young Buddhist monks. As a result, the ship was not as full as it normally is. At the small harbour in Delft the friendly guide with two TucTucs showed us the sights of the island. The Wild Horses and swimming on the beach were the most interesting for the children. The beaches are not accessible, but easy to reach. The other island highlights were less exciting for the boys (10,12,14). For me, the friendly TucTuc driver, who is also the english teacher of the island, as well as the 'blessed' crossing with forty Buddhist monks were probably the biggest highlight.
