Little Rome

Located close to the international airport, Negombo has a reputation for being either the first or last taste of the country for visitors. The city has historically been known for its fishing industry, with atmospheric and bustling fish markets still among the main places to visit in Negombo. The sandy coast has reinvigorated the town in recent years, with a wealth of modern hotels and restaurants opening up close to the beach. They sit next to a scattered few remains of the colonial era, when the Dutch, Portuguese, and British all set themselves up here, leaving behind a few impressive, European-style buildings. To arrange what you want to do in Negombo, use our Sri Lanka trip planning tool.
