Top places to visit in Negombo

There are many places of interest in the city, such as Sri Lanka’s second-largest fish market, locally known as Lellama, situated at the north end of the lagoon. Here, daily fish auctions happen, giving you a chance to meet the local fishermen to buy fish or even organize fishing trips with them. Another place worth visiting is the Muthurajawela Marshland, which is part of a nature reserve covering 6,000 hectares of land. As Negombo is known for having the best shorelines on the west coast of the country, you should also not miss going to its quiet stretches of beaches that are maintained by the tourist hotels and offer water sports and activities, such as diving.

 

Top things to do in Negombo

Along the way, you will see beautiful ruins, tea plantations and spice gardens, as well as chill out on a serene beach.
  • Enjoying the Beaches - A holiday in Negombo would not be complete without a day at one of its beaches that stretch north from the town along the hotel strip to palm-filled shores at a distance. The waters here are not bad for swimming. Particularly, you can join the locals at the Negombo Beach Park.
