Beach Resort Advice

Hi . I'm coming from the UK next March for the cricket. I have 2 days at the beginning of my holidays free. Can anyone suggest a good beach resort not far from Colombo so that I may enjoy some R&R before the test match.

Thanks in advance

Unless you are shopaholic spending a day in Colombo is a waste.

Arriving early in the morning you can easily go to you first destination, e.g. Kandy or Cultural Triangle. If you need to recover after the flight Negombo is a good place to do that, though the beaches are not among the nicest in Sri Lanka.

Hi !

Best would be to stay in Negombo, or if you are that early, why not start on the tour straight away ? There is so much to see in Sri Lanka other than the beaches or Colombo.

I stayed for two weeks in Negombo last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. The beach is not nearly as bad as some people suggest and it has some of the best eating places and holiday hotels in Sri Lanka.
