Negombo is not an expansive town, but that doesn’t mean it’s short of things to do or places to go. Plus, its close proximity to the airport makes it a preferred destination by many, either on the way in or out. Negombo is also a thriving tourist destination, and is not only responsible for fishing, but also cinnamon production. Head to the Negombo lagoon, explore the multitude of religious places of worship, including shrines, temples, churches and mosques. Aside from also visiting The Dutch Canal and the nearby fort, you can also get a fresh catch from the bustling fish market.
