Negombo Holidays and Deals

Negombo
Overview

Just a short drive from the capital Colombo, Negombo is the closest beach destination to the airport, and hence a popular choice with holidaymakers and also locals taking a bit of a rest from the busyness of city life.

 

The wide sandy beach at Negombo is a great place to relax and unwind after a long flight, or perhaps a full day sightseeing in Sri Lanka’s capital city of Colombo, which is just a short drive south along the coast. There are a great number of quality hotels to choose from in Negombo so whether it’s a smaller, family run guest house or a larger, international-style hotel, there is plenty on offer for all different tastes.

 

Many of the hotels are located along the gorgeous stretch of beach, most with direct access to that all-important sand and ocean and many have rooms with beautiful ocean and sunset views. It’s likely that you’ll come across many locals, playing football or cricket on the beach and also local fisherman trying their luck for their daily catch!

If you’re able to pull yourself away from the beach, it’s worth taking a stroll down the main high street where you will find a good number of shops, restaurants and street-food stands to try. Whilst there will of course be the chance to try real Sri Lankan food here, many of the eateries cater for the western palate, so don’t expect too much authenticity!
