0 Km

Overview

Situated on the west coast of Sri Lanka approximately 37km from the Commercial Capital Colombo, is the northernmost resort and large fishing town of Negombo. The proximity from the Bandaranaike International Airport of just 7km has helped make Negombo one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country which offers long Sandy beaches complemented by historical landmarks and rich colonial architecture.

Mainly a Roman Catholic city, Negombo has been given the name 'Little Rome' due to the highly ornate Portuguese era Roman Catholic churches found within the township. The city is graced with architectural and constructional delights from the colonial era with abundant Dutch, Portuguese and British influence. Historically, Negombo was a fishing village and still is one of the main suppliers of fresh Fish to the local market and for export. The sight of the fisher folk out at sea on their out rigger canoes is a particularly charming sight. Modern Negombo is by no means a village and is well developed at both the city centre and the outskirts with shopping malls, restaurants and a very busy urban atmosphere.

With some of the best beaches on the west coast, Lagoon and of course delightful sea food, Negombo is definitely a must visit destination for any traveler looking for that long and relaxing sun bath or the tantalizing food menu.
