Things you can do in Negombo beach
“Negombo ” is an underrated coastal destination in Sri Lanka which holds a great significance and attracts many tourists. Located in the western coast of the island it is only 10-15 min away from the Bandaranaike international airport is the perfect place to start a relaxed vacation.
Picture the sunny beaches and the amazing hospitality that this tiny island offers. The beauty of Negombo is that it is located on the shores of the Negombo lagoon which had been a significant trading port to both the Portuguese and the Dutch. The scenic western coast beach is just a short drive from the metropolitan city; Colombo and is often the ideal retreat for busy locals and travelers looking for a quick escape of calm and quiet away from the hustle and bustle.
