Beach is great with great waves. It is clean and has a few shacks selling food items. In the evening certain sections get a bit too crowded.

Negombo beach is good to walk off the jet lag, but isn’t the prettiest. There’s a bit of construction going on, but it was reasonably tidy. Best of all, it was hot and sunny!

A nice beach where you can take a walk and watch the beautiful sunset. You will also get to see local fishermen doing their daily fishing routine.

Very busy beach on weekends with locals, great sunset views! Street food available from many stalls. Families tend to come here to relax and swim.

Negombo Beach is one of the famous beaches of Sri Lanka. Negombo is my hometown and I am familiar with it from my childhood. There was a vast area which is surrounded by Hotels and beach Villa's. If you want to stay there are many...More

Ideal place for a walk/run on the beach. Should you target a surfing place, I would rather recommend the southern part of the country (Merissa)

It’s hard to judge affordable, however a very nice hotel was Goldi Sands. Food was good and entertainment on. However I would not recommend staying in Negombo, there are nicer places.

I think you can but the southern beaches are more suitable and popular. Try any place between Galle and Dondra like Unawatuna or Mirissa!
