Sea

It is not currently possible to travel to Sri Lanka by sea. A service linking Colombo and Tuticorin (Tamil Nadu) in India lasted only a few months in 2011. Prior to the civil war, a ferry service linked Mannar in northwest Sri Lanka to Rameshwaram in India; there has been talk of reviving this route for several years, but there are few signs that this might actually materialise.
