Mount Lavinia Beach, Colombo

3.4
#1 of 7 in Beaches in Western Province
Watch the waves breaking directly on the shore of Mount Lavinia Beach, which hosts a strip of high-end restaurants and hotels. Rent a hut here and feast on some of fresh seafood while admiring the sunset or gazing at starry skies. The waters lapping the beach are not suitable for swimming all year round, but you can still wade up to your hips or enjoy building sand castles and playing sports on the seafront. If you take a boat tour, you might catch a sight of dolphins. To visit Mount Lavinia Beach on your trip to Colombo, use our Colombo online holiday planner .

  • During the day, there's nothing to do on this beach. On 2 or 3 spots where sunbeds are rented. Please take care of what is usual for the loungers free is on. If you eat or drink at the landlord. That's probably a hotel (all can sometimes several hundred meters away). And then you can drink or your lunch just 35% more expensive thanks to the complex tax system that Sri Lanka. in the evening, there are a number of larger and smaller restaurants opened. The large belong to a hotel, not the smaller. This can mean that the smaller restaurants add 10% service only at the Bill. Swimming is not recommended. The coast for Colombo is pretty dirty. Too bad, because such a beach near such a large city offers many opportunities.
