Hi there

Not sure of the distance but it doesn't take too long. During the day you can get a taxi from outside the hotel for 1000 rupees return (around £5.00)but if you were staying there I'm not sure how long the drivers would wait for the return journey. Best thing to do is ask during the day as there are more of them around. Didn't eat in Negombo but there is a very good restaurant almost opposite the hotel called The Canal Garden Restaurant. It's very good and nice for a change. Very cheap too. 3 of us had a 3 course meal each and drinks all for around £20 for all of us.

We went by Tuk Tuk to Negombo for a few quid and that included a guide for the trip. Didn't go on a night as not really the place to go on a night. There are a couple of hotels in Negombo so sure you could eat at those if no restaurants.

The canalside is a lovely restaurant.

The nights are very quiet here, so we spent most nights after dinner on the beach having romantic walks in the sand with the waves lapping at our feet.

You are so lucky........ you will have a fab time

We can recommend The Canal Garden Restaurant as well. We had a lovely meal there.

The owner came and sat with us and bought us drinks, he is a lovely guy....... Enjoy!!!
