Go to the sections behind the seafood restaurant Grand Oceanpark or near Jetwing Blue Hotel. The beach is very wide and long. Clean. Waves are strong though. Spent a nice afternoon playing there.

The beach in Negombo is dirty everywhere, even in fron of 5 star hotels. Moreover because somwhere near the ruver comes into the ocean it is grey. We wouldn’t recommend Negombo for beach holidays.

This was the first beach after touring Srilanka for two weeks I managed to get to walk on. rather stark and sad to say to much plastic and rubbish. Pleasant for a swim when the sun is shining but not particularly scintillating water.

Dirty beach with rough sand. The water is not suitable for swimming. Go someplace else if you want the Sri Lankan paradise beaches!

Preferably chose a good Hotel facing Sea. I would personally suggest Jetwing Sea as we stayed there. You will find the boats and other activities at the site

Beach side is nice, but not as nice as the beaches on the south coast! A way up north of Negombo you'll find a lot of nice places to stay, very good restaurants and if you like some good ayurveda spas (I can recommend JCs... More
