Mount Lavinia Beach, Colombo

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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.
