Main Fish Market
Every day, fishermen take their outrigger canoes and go out looking for fish, They’re an excellent sight as they glide home into the lagoon following a fishing trip. Over the lagoon bridge there’s a second fair. A great place to view much larger fishing boats return with their catches.
Extending north from the town right down the hotel strip before disappearing into a palm tree stretch, occasionally approachable in front of many huge hotels even if you're not staying, but for an additional vibrant (and rowdy) scene join the natives at what is known as Negombo Beach Park.
Next to the beach near the lagoon are the remains of the ancient Dutch fort, which has an excellent gateway carved with the date 1678. Also here is a green, called the Esplanade, where cricket matches are a huge appeal, many ancient Dutch structures are still being used.
Negombo is filled with churches – and is sometimes called ‘Little Rome’. East of town the Angurukaramulla Temple, with its 6m-long lounging Buddha, is also worth viewing. The island of Duwa, connected to Negombo by the lagoon bridge, is popular for its Easter passion play.
The Dutch displayed their love of canals here like nowhere else in Sri Lanka. Canals stretch from Negombo all the way south to Colombo and north to Puttalam, a complete length of around 120km. Rent a bicycle from hotels and travel the canal-side routes, relishing the sights and tiny villages.
St Mary’s Church
The well-known church and one of the largest appeals on the island. It is around 140 years old and has got astonishing religious portraits colored all over its ceiling. It looks pretty grand from outside, with medieval pillars and polished cream walls.
Famous for its historic sculpture of the Buddha, and its dragon-entry - inside you discover elaborate paintings that date back centuries. There is also a 300+ year old remain of an ancient library here, coated in moss. Inside astonishing statues and illustrations on the ceiling, displaying the Buddha's trip to knowledge.
Mother Nature revolved this into Sri Lanka’s largest saline marsh, residents to purple herons, cormorants and kingfishers. The marsh offers a home to nearly 75 bird types, also crocodiles, monkeys and even a few hardly seen otters.
Dutch Clock Tower
The fort is placed amid a beach and lagoon beneath mild skies. A ditch, embankments and a couple of towers are all that’s remaining of the once splendid fort city. But, the clock tower which protects the entrance is still conserved and is proof to the inheritance Negombo comprises of its radiant history.
A very huge reef with a plenty of foreign fish counting, Lobsters, groupers, snappers, lion fish and plenty of various other things to be viewed. Huge whip type black coral growth is discovered on the summit of the reef together with anemones. Great location for many positions of instructive dives.
