  • The airport, about 20 minutes away from the capital is a beautiful place and a distinctive look awesome and clean place to relax and enjoy the view there.

  • I slept in a hotel by the sea and you may be better in the pool. The sea is too wild to swim in and on the beach you will be directly approached by sellers. There is no one on the beach.

  • Although we already knew how they were the beaches of Negombo we decided to stop with the Tuk-Tuk to see it, it was with enough garbage in the sand, which is a shame since the same well-kept would be a few good beaches.

Where to stay in Negombo

Its proximity to the airport and its coastline mean that Negombo now offers a long list of places to stay. The mix of accommodations in town remains pretty good, with the focus of many lying understandably on the coast. Family-run guesthouses and welcoming homestays provide the best options for those looking for budget-friendly accommodations, with some right on the beachfront, and others just behind on the side streets, nestled among shops and restaurants. Luxury options come in the form of resorts, set both on the beach and on the side of tree-lined boulevards inland.
