We invited family for dinner, but when we went down for dinner at about 8.45 / 9.00 p.m. we noticed that most of the... More

Very close to airport and nice place for a Morning walk. It's was very relaxing. It's very close to may hotels and restaurants. Need to have adequate facilities for visitors and also need to improve the cleanliness.

Had a walk down it in the morning after arrival and is really to much of a commercial beach just off a main road for my liking. Wouldn't stay here except for first night stop over on arrival at Colombo Airport. With several massage joints along the main road think a commercial area for a specific type of holiday maker.

Nothing out of the ordinary but its a good beach with a line of hotels near the airport. Not a crowded beach like Mt Lavinia.

This was the perfect beach in Negombo area. Beach park was seemed to be maintained by the Council. Area was pretty clean. There was facility of water and average washrooms. There were vendors. Golden sandy beach stretches to few miles. Hoteliers maintain some areas nicely. Many people could be seen in the evenings of week days and Saturday Sunday throughout... More
