Flowing through the heart of the city, Dutch Canal once acted as an important transportation and trading route. Today, the long canal still allows transportation, but mostly for tourists looking for a unique way to explore the city. Various tour operators conduct boat tours on the canal, which typically include several stops along the way and end at Negombo Lagoon. Alternatively, approach a local boatman to inquire about a tour. To visit Dutch Canal and get the most from your holiday in Negombo, create itinerary details personal to you using our Negombo itinerary planner.
