Galle Face Green, Colombo
(3.3/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Get the city on one side and the sea on the other at Galle Face Green, the city's green lung. The largest open space in the urban area, it sits between the busy financial district and the ocean. Once used as an official sports area, with horse racing, a golf course, and rugby and cricket pitches, the park now serves as a blank canvas for locals and tourists to indulge in their favorite activities, surrounded by extensive views of the ocean. For Galle Face Green and beyond, use our Colombo itinerary maker to get the most from your Colombo vacation.

  • Very shabby no benches to sit but good views of the sea people selling rubbish etc OK to sit for a while 
  • Took a nice Sunday stroll on a Sunday afternoon. Great view of the open ocean. Loved watching the high waves hit the shores. 
  • Fantastic place for a stroll with the family - the ocean and the breeze, vendors with locale food, children playing or flying kites - what a fun place.
