A city that has been a favourite trading port for both the Dutch and the Portuguese- Negombo, today is a popular tourist attraction.
The best time for your Negombo visit
Negombo is beautiful throughout the year. But, since the majority of the people here are Catholics, they say Negombo is much more eventful during Christmas and Easter.
Venues to stay in
Negombo is a great holiday destination as well. Any Negombo beach hotel can guarantee you a blissful coastal escape and hotels the likes of Heritance Negombo offer you nothing less than an ultimate luxury.
Things to explore
Negombo still has some ruins from the Dutch colonial times. The Dutch Fort and the Dutch Canal are two such important landmarks in Negombo that should definitely be visited. You can also visit the fishing market in Negombo for an amazing experience.
