Not a place to lounge around to catch rays. It was a dirty beach and had locals trying to sell you beaded jewellery or sarongs. There are better beaches South of the island.

Spent a few days on the beach whilst staying in Negombo with my then girlfriend. It's a nice enough beach to relax on and/or have a swim. There are also a few bars dotted along the beach that also serve food. We spent a couple...More
