Negombo beach lives up to pretty much everything that we read in the guide books. On the one hand, it is lovely, stepping out for the first time (if you’ve come straight to Negombo from your flight) to see tropical seas and wind-swept palm trees....More

Negombo Beach has always been rough & wild unlike the beautiful beaches on the south coast and has always had quite a lot of rubbish and litter from fishing boats and littering locals. Negombo council really does seem to be trying to clean it up....More

Very disappointed by the state of this beach. Lots of locals hanging around, including quite a few drunks. Rubbish and broken glass. Sea is rough and quite a lot of pollution along the shore line. The only good thing is the view out to sea...More

Really nice place, nice beach with many dogs, but with very but very hot watter in the ocean. There is no relaxing swimming possible. But really strange the wave. Only for good swimmers.

Handy to airport. Nothing special about the beach except the fishing boats cruising the ocean. Great sun sets but has a dirty beach certain times of the year. Handy to Colombo also.

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!

Preferably chose a good Hotel facing Sea. I would personally suggest Jetwing Sea as we stayed there. You will find the boats and other activities at the site
