Fun Filled Negombo..

Negombo beach

About an hour’s drive north from Colombo, Negombo is an ideal travel spot for those on a short stopover since it`s located not far from the Bandaranaike International Airport. Negombo boats some of the finest beaches in the country, and is blessed with bright sunshine and clear blue skies.
Much like Bentota to the south of the commercial capital, Negombo is flanked by the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean and is ideal to relax or indulge in a tropical environment. Activities such as beach volleyball and water polo thrive on Negombo’s beaches and in dozens of swimming pools around town.
And when you`ve had your fill of the beach, take a walk down the main street to sample a veritable smorgasbord of gastronomic adventures-especially of the shellfish kind. You can also fish, treat yourself to Ayurveda spa treatments or spend hours in delightful souvenir shops.
December to April is generally considered the ideal time to visit Negombo to avoid thunder showers and excessive sunshine.
