  • We visited Negombo beach, the bit outside Goldi sands. It is the most filthy and disgusting place you can find. The plastic pollution is appalling on its own but in addition an army of stray dogs...

  • Pretty nice place. Clean, warm, sometimes windy. Perfect place to watch the sunset. Pretty romantic after dusk. There are a few cafe's and restaurants with ocean view. Some fast food stalls. Also several salesman walking around offering their goods (not too annoying though). Beach is not for swimming!
  • It is really lovely around 6:15am (sunrise time) and around 6:00pm (sunset). Did some exercise in the morning, only few people and tranquillity. sunset times is busy but good for walks… Big waves in March and not for swimming! P.S. please do not leave garbage on the beach.
