Holidays to Negombo
Quiet by day, but slightly livelier by night, this beachside resort is close to the international airport, but still a great introduction to Sri Lanka. Share the picturesque, golden sandy beaches of Negombo with local fishermen and see what catches they're bringing ashore each day and soak up the colonial charm of the town.
This long, wide beach is popular with locals and holidaymakers. Watch out, as the waves can get very big.
Head north up the coast and you'll find deserted beaches and places for dolphin spotting along the Kalpitiya peninsula.
This is a fantastic example of a Sri Lankan temple, with plenty of wall art and statues on the interior.
St Mary's Church
This tranquil church, which is one of the largest in Negombo, has beautiful ceiling paintings and wall frescoes.
A day at the cricket
Sri Lanka is a cricket mad nation, so if you get a chance to see a match in Colombo, you'd be wise to give it a try!
Take to the waves
Head out on a boat to try to catch sight of the many spinner dolphins, blue and sperm whales which live off the coast.
You're on the coast, so make the most of the fisherman's catches by trying out some of the delicious and abundant fish.
The ultimate Sri Lankan street food, this stir fry dish uses leftover bread (roti) with vegetables and meat.
Head to Beach Road
Negombo's not got the busiest nightlife, but you'll find some great little bars near the beach.
This casual bar/restaurant is a great place to watch the world go by and enjoy a few drinks.
