North West Coast

The main town of the North West Coast is Negombo, home to many Roman Catholics in Sri Lanka. The Old Dutch Fort and the Dutch Cemetery with a huge Banyan tree are popular sites, along with the vibrant and colourful shopping arcades and urban restaurants. You will find many churches built by the Portuguese and Dutch here. The Dutch also built a network of canals from South of Negombo to Colombo, and North of Negombo to Puttalam, totaling a distance of 120 km. The North West Coast stretches from Negombo to Puttalam and is about 100 km.

Negombo is predominantly a fishing village where you can capture a fascinating picture of fisherman with their traditional boats.

Due to its proximity to the Katunayake International Airport, Negombo has been a prime beach holiday destination for many years.
