Negombo is a city in Sri Lanka.

Contents

Get in

Katunayake airport (CMB) is closer to Negombo than Colombo. Most Hotels arrange pick up but at a very high cost (around 1500 to 2500 LKR).

A cheaper option is to take the free shuttle bus (exit the airport, turn left and walk until the shuttle bus stop at the end of the building) from the Arrival Terminal to Katunayake bus stop which is just 5 minutes away from the airport. Then take a tuk-tuk to your hotel in Negombo for 400 to 500 LKR or take a regular bus to Negombo centre for around 50 LKR.

Get around

Tuk Tuk (Three wheelers) 150 LKR from the Negombo Bus/Train Station to any hotel at lewis Place.

See

There is not much to see in Negombo just a long strip of Sandy Beach, sit back, relax, sun bath or take a dive in to the Indian Ocean but the water is mostly rough.
