Negombo

Once a small fishing village north of Colombo, Negombo has become Sri Lanka’s international gateway due to its proximity to the International Airport. For many visitors, a day or two in Negombo offers the perfect acclimatising start or a relaxing end to their holiday.

The town merits exploration, for its many colonial churches and a Dutch built canal which is a hive of activity with fishermen traveling up and down in their gaily-painted boats. The beaches are nearby, and the resorts offer comfort, luxury and style.
