Negombo is one of the most popular coastal destinations in the Western Province of Sri Lanka. Located just a short distance away from Colombo, the city of Negombo has a rich heritage as it served as a major port city during the Dutch era of Sri Lanka. The city is known for its unique culture, vibrant society, golden sandy beaches, and laidback ambiance, making it ideal for travellers looking for a tranquil vacation.
The Negombo Beach Park is arguably the city’s most popular attraction. The beach park is essentially a section of the pristine stretch of beach along the Negombo coast. The beach is considered to be one of the best beaches in the area, and is frequently visited by both locals and tourists. The stretch of beach is long and runs undisturbed for quite some distance, making it a great place to chill out in the evening or to hang around during the day while working on a tan. For an enjoyable and relaxing stay at a Negombo resort within easy reach of the park consider making a reservation at Club Hotel Dolphin.
The Negombo Beach Park offers you the traditional Sri Lankan beach experience; sun-kissed golden sand beaches, warm blue waters, luscious coconut palms, and warm tropical weather conditions – the perfect combination for a beach experience. The beach is not the most secluded beach around, as in the evenings many locals come to the beach for a sea-bath, to fly kites, to walk along the beach, or to just chill out with their friends or partners. Thus, the beach is always abuzz with activity, although it never gets crowded per se. It is recommended that you come to this beach in the evenings and watch all the activity, as it is a true representation of the life and culture of the folk in Negombo. The Negombo Beach Park is a great place at which you can work on a tan, engage in beach sports, have a sea bath, play in the sand, or watch the sunset, and thus, is truly worth visiting.
