When traveling with Beezerland we make it a point to choose the best destinations that will give you the finest experience of Sri Lanka. When taking our clients to visit the golden beaches that surround Sri Lanka, we make sure you visit Negombo.
Negombo is located around 37 km north of the commercial capital of Colombo in Sri Lanka. It is positioned at the mouth of the Negombo lagoon. The major beach resort in the West Coast is Negombo. The wide sandy beaches and the safe sea are the main attractions of Negombo as a popular beach destination. Negombo’s beach, which stretches north from the town right along the hotel strip before fading into a palm tree distance, has been recently tidied up and, in front of the big hotels, is now quite pleasant. Foreign tourists can often access the beach in front of most big hotels, but for a more colourful and friendlier scene, you can join the locals at what is known as Negombo Beach Park.
Negombo also offers a number of exciting water sports, such as sailing and activities such as Whale and Dolphin watching. These majestic creatures can be viewed in large numbers almost every morning. You can take a day trip from the Negombo area to the breeding grounds, where it’s quite likely you’ll see blue and sperm whales. When touring with Beezerland, we make sure that all of our visitors get the opportunity of viewing the majestic whales and dolphins.
Sailboats can be hired in Negombo for just one hour; however, it is more common to charter a boat and captain for a half or full-day, or more. A day out on a boat will give you a chance to observe life along the shore while enjoying the warm tropical breezes at sea.
Negombo also produces spices, ceramics and brassware. The town has a majority of Roman Catholics along with Buddhists, Hindus and Muslims while it has been given the name “Little Rome” due to the highly ornate Portuguese-era Roman Catholic churches found within the township. The town has several buildings that date back to the Dutch and Portuguese colonial era. Attractions in the city include the old Dutch fort gate built in 1672 now a part of the prison, the Dutch Canal which was then a supply route to the Dutch administration, old churches and fishing villages. The Katuwapitiya Church and the Grand Street Church are the two biggest parishes in Negombo. “Agurukaramulla temple” is a famous Buddhist temple bringing Buddhists from all over Sri Lanka to Negombo every year
