  • From the beach in Negombo we not much waited-and correctly done! The beach is really big and messy. On the sand and in the water a lot of garbage: bottles, packets, coconuts, plastic, dead fish-which just wasn't there. High waves. Swim is very carefully, and never dive in the water can swipe coconut, for example. A lot of local beach-get ready for the views in his side, the imposition of the goods (shells) and services (such as boating, even in a storm). When we sunbathed, we flew a flock of Sri Lankan guys with insistent proposal make selfi barely left alone! Keep an eye on things. In addition, the beach is full of ugly paintings frolicking dogs and crows fighting over a dead fish. In General, clearly not the most pleasant place for a beach holiday.
