  • The Lighthouse is really small and with the work of the new island under construction the view is completely blocked by the work. If that's your way, stop taking you a photo but you don't have to make a detour to get there

  • The light house is situated on an elevated platform and on display along the corridor are some war weapons of ancient design. Currently land filling and huge construction activites going on. Cool sea ...  more »
  • This light house, now guarded by soldiers with automatic weapons, is worth a quick stop if you’re in the area if only to see the lovely lions placed around the base. There’s not much to it but it’s on...  more »

  • Visit this beautiful place in night time. It gives you awsome feeling. It's not crowded in night. You can enjoy the beem of light and the wind blowing.. on the area you can see how the new port city project is completing.

  • Good Place for relaxing. Earlier this place was on the beach. Port city is constructed at the location (sea is filled). therefore We cannot experience the real light house experience.

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
