"Wild beach - crazy fish market" Negombo by Robert_Hun
Negombo Travel Guide: 87 reviews and 194 photos
The beach at the hotel line is really great, there are quite big waves but still funny to swim in.
Although Negombo has almost 100,000 inhabitants, it still looks like a big village - with some nice canals.
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: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
There are many boats along the beach. They belong mostly to fishermen who sometimes offer tourists a boat trip around... more travel advice
