  • Good to have a quick stop to take photos, located near Galle Face Green, next to opposite the Kingsbury. Nothing much to do, as you can not even enter the Lighthouse.  more »
  • Lighthouse located near the commercial port of Colombo ... was disappointing because we expected a decidedly highest lighthouse and visitors can only access to the rooftop terrace and not climb to the top of the lighthouse ... However if you come here to see the area of the ancient Fort of Colombo you can make a trip to do some nice photos and see the guns (which are all still placed pending the arrival of the invaders coming from the sea). Not far from here there is also the old lighthouse of the town which is now known as the "clock tower".

  • Go on a foot trip to the Sambhodi Chaithya and the Maritime Museum through here. The view is disappointing in day time because all you see is sand and trucks going in and out right to the horizon because of port city construction. The evenings are good though. Nights are even better. Do that foot trip!
  • A great place to visit during the wee hours of the day and the afternoon/night. Great view of the colombo port.
  • Nice place ,u can see nice sun sat in the evening
  • Lovely place especially in evenings. Can have a great view of work in progress Port City of Colombo.
  • Has a good view
