Negombo Beach, Negombo

(1/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
Popular because of its proximity to the airport, Negombo Beach boasts a long and broad stretch of golden sand lined with resorts, bars, and restaurants. Although it attracts fishermen and people who fly into town, the sheer size of the beach makes it easy to find a quiet spot and relax. Take a long, peaceful walk beside the shore, or hang out in a beachside bar and people-watch.

  • Relax on the beach or take an early morning walk as you watch the boats set off from the beach for a days fishing.Come back later to see the days catch or head onwards to buy some from the fish market...  more »
  • Negombo and Negombo Beach are really only for the / departure day to recommend. The distance to the airport is good and after a long flight you still haven't need to drive through the area. Otherwise the beach is not recommended because Sri Lanka has to offer significantly better beaches in the South. Overall very dirty and much garbage on the beach.
