• Luxury Negombo Holidays
  • Overview

    Sitting at the mouth of a lagoon on Sri Lanka’s western coast, the lively resort of Negombo is famed for its broad sandy beaches and safe seas, making it a great destination for swimming and water sports. Diving is extremely popular and there are coral reefs and even a shipwreck to explore.

    Once an important source of cinnamon, Negombo has a rich history and bears the fingerprints of Portuguese, Dutch and British colonists. It is even known as Sri Lanka’s Little Rome, owing, some say, to its large Catholic population. Its impressive array of colonial buildings offers fascinating sightseeing, particularly the imposing fort which was built by the Dutch in the 17th century. There are ornate churches too, as well as temples and mosques.

    Negombo has plenty of restaurants serving delicious seafood, and shoppers can stock up on everything from ceramics to spices. Yet away from the town, the quiet waters of Negombo’s lagoon provide a precious haven for wildlife.
