Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Mount Lavinia Beach is located just out of the Colombo city. This beach strip has a lot to offer for the locals as well as the tourists visiting Colombo. Along the beach there are many nice restaurants pubs as well as relaxing areas. As a tourist who is visiting Colombo, Mount Lavinia Beach is a must visit. The weekends could be crowded with locals though, during the week it is relaxing and peaceful. If you would relax at a pool overlooking the ocean or the sunset, The Mount Lavinia Hotel terrace is recommended. You can use the Mount Lavinia Hotel pool for an affordable fee.
Useful Information: Food available for purchase

This is a popular hotel and the weekend brunches are well attended, so it pays to reserve a table. The selection is broadly divided into Sri Lankan staples, European offerings such as pasta and roasts, and a smattering of Oriental dishes. The chafing dishes are replenished regularly and quickly, but the local food is typically only lukewarm, eaten as it is by hand. Nevertheles a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere in a typically colonial venue overlooking the crashing of waves onto the rocks below. Strategically located ceiling fans help keep the outdoor heat at bay.

Super romantic and a sea food lovers paradise ! I was there only for a meal by the sea. The shacks decorated illuminated with colorful lights and the soft music playing in the background just took my breath away !

Very famous among the Sri Lankans as well as foreigners for its beach and the lovely restaurants/entertainment around the place. It gets lively towards the evenings and a great location to see the sun set.

I've come here in low season. I can only assume that in peak season, somebody bothers to clear the rubbish from the beach each day. I went to the beach last night expecting a beautiful tropical paradise. What I found was that I had to walk through a Shanty town and across railway tracks to get to a beach ankle high in rubbish infested by flies.
