Mount Lavinia Beach, Colombo

(3.5/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Watch the waves breaking directly on the shore of Mount Lavinia Beach, which hosts a strip of high-end restaurants and hotels. Rent a hut here and feast on some of fresh seafood while admiring the sunset or gazing at starry skies. The waters lapping the beach are not suitable for swimming all year round, but you can still wade up to your hips or enjoy building sand castles and playing sports on the seafront. If you take a boat tour, you might catch a sight of dolphins. Before you head to Colombo, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Colombo trip generator, to make sure you see all that Colombo has to offer, including Mount Lavinia Beach.

  • Very nice spread, tasty food, good ambience. Again service an issue which has per me is an overall Colombo issue. 
  • Must see beach outside Colombo. It is not far away (45 mins) from Colombo and is a favourite haunt for all beach lovers visiting Colombo
