Had a nice evening with my family. We enjoyed a lot there by making sand castles, flying kites and bathing in the sea.

I went to there season off. There's not many people. I used the train from colombo. Very close. East to get. Local people were very friendly, felt too much for me. Anyway, I sat and had a tea atMt. Lain via hotel and got Spa. It might be good to escape from busy place!

This place has the best breakfast buffet around Colombo but they always have a good lunch and dinner buffet. We took our engagement photos here but also did our wedding reception here. They give us a sea side room for our wedding night....

The best beach in the Colombo province. The sandy nature and the sunset view makes it a romantic attraction. Although it's sometimes crowded, it isn't a bad experience.
