Its not the prettiest beach in the world but ita good for people watching. Lots of boats that will take you anywhere. Many locals selling things. They are very friendly and we enjoyed chatting to them. Quite a bit of rubbish on the beach near where the locals park.

You are fine if you stay inside your hotel’s pool and garden area, but if you step off hotel property onto the public beach you will be met by drunk locals, men leering at Western women in bikinis, men urinating against walls and trees and Rasta beach boys playing loud music. Sri Lanka’s beaches are deteriorating fast and are almost at the tipping point where foreign tourists will recommend against coming here on holiday. Negombo beach is probably the worst for litter and antisocial behaviour. The authorities better get their act together quickly.

Negombo was our first stop.
And the beach was really pretty but there was a flasher showing his thing while there were children and nobody did something about that.

but awesome for taking pictures because of all the colorfull fishermen boats.

This hotel is situated approximately 30 minutes from Colombo airport.
It's absolute beach front location with direct access to the beach makes it an ideal location for everyone.
The hotel is centrally located for access to other facilities in town.
The hotel is modern and clean, with 2 restaurants, one on ground floor the other on roof level.
Pool looks nice and clean.
Rooms are well sized and spacious with quality appointments.
Air conditioning works well and view from the balcony is unobstructed to the beach.
I recommend this hotel!

The beach is long and wide but the locals have no respect for it.
The is rubbish everywhere including broken glass, would not recommend walking here without shoes.
Some parts have surf and other parts would be great for swimming if only they bothered to get a rake and clean it up rather than sitting in the huts in the beach all day and drinking
