Galle Face Green, Colombo

(3.8/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • Unusual to find large area of grass next to the sea. Lovely place though. Clean and inviting even at night. Great food stalls along the front. Must see.... Go at night to get kottu roti.  more »
  • The beach itself is good to spend sometime. There are also people flying kites on the park adjacent to the beach. There are multiple vendors selling local fried food and stuff on the boardwalk.  more »

  • Great place to walk, feel the breeze and see people chilling on the bench and the ground. There are a lot of vendors to enjoy the scenery. In the other side you can see the port and some ships
  • Going here since I was a little kid. Still I love the place. You can check out food stalls and eat something or just buy and fly a kite to kill the time :)
  • Full of fun. fine place to be in the evening. can see sun set. very spacious. food available. parking available. busy in evenings.
  • Famous place among children and adults. Nice sea view and playground also there.
  • The best place to spend the evening facing the beach. There are food stalls and also sellers with various types of toys, specially kites which is most popular in this place. People spend the evening happily with their loved ones in this large area. Most suitable for playing, walking, and spending the time.
