Negombo is the fourth largest metropolitan area of Sri Lanka, and it is also a thriving tourist destination with plenty of beach-bound fun to offer, making it an essential experience in Sri Lanka
One of the best parts about Negombo is her lagoon, which is not only iconic and beautiful, but plays a very important role in the livelihood of the Negombo people. Many use the lagoon for fishing or agricultural purposes. There’s also a range of water-sports that take place here, such as windsurfing, kayaking and scuba diving.
Negombo is a much more laid back and peaceful setting compared to the more chaotic confines of Colombo. It’s far less congested and you can travel without the inconvenience of traffic jams, pollution and having your time wasted.
Clean Coastal Splendour
The coastline of Negombo is generally a lot cleaner and peaceful than what you might expect in Colombo. It’s also quite easy to find a nice isolated stretch of beach that you can enjoy along with the company of your choosing. You will also find many Negombo hotels along the coast such as Heritance Negombo.
Negombo is one of the most happening places in Sri Lanka, and whether it be nightclubs, restaurants or shopping malls you will find plenty here.
