LOVELY BEACHES, WATERSPORTS & RELAXATIONNegombo is located on the west coast of Sri Lanka at the mouth of the Negombo Lagoon and is the 5th largest city in the country. It is a busy coastal city with a large fishing industry with busy fish markets that are worth a visit when staying in the beach resorts. It offers some of the best beaches on the west coast and it is popular as a starting or ending point for travellers doing a touring itinerary of the country due to its close proximity to Colombo Airport. There are lovely long stretches of beach with a number of quality beach-fronted hotels and resorts. Watersports, scuba diving and snorkelling are popular pastimes and there are a few well-preserved coral reefs and an old shipwreck to explore. In the city itself there are shops and stalls selling local handicrafts, batiks and jewellery.
