  • Mannar Island is not in all tourist guides; that does this peninsula deficit! There really is plenty to see in terms of natural beauty and interesting places like the old pier where the ferry to India and the train came together. Furthermore, the thickest boabab tree etc.

  • Mannar is well known for it's birds. But there is more to see, like an old Dutch fort, the mansion of the English govenor and the famous Baobab trees which you will only find in Africa. 
  • Mannar gives travellers a very different experience to the rest of the Island. You'll see donkeys roam freely on the streets. Vast landscapes and a very diverse culture.
