"Wild beach - crazy fish market" Negombo by Robert_Hun

Negombo Travel Guide: 88 reviews and 196 photos

Beach for surge-lovers

The beach at the hotel line is really great, there are quite big waves but still funny to swim in.

A tropical "downtown"

Although Negombo has almost 100,000 inhabitants, it still looks like a big village - with some nice canals.

Visit the local markets

Negombo is 40 km's north from Colombo and only 20 km's from Bandaranaike International Airport.
It has some good local markets (esp. the fish market - see my Must See tip).

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great beach, great markets, close to Colombo
  • Cons:Mosquitos, a bit dirty town
  • In a nutshell:I cannot compare it with other beaches in SL but I enjoyed it a lot
