Negombo Lagoon is arguably one of the largest estuarine lagoons in south-west Sri Lanka, and right next-door to Ramada Katunayake Hotel. You could even call it, our backyard.

The Negombo lagoon linked to the sea by a narrow channel to the north, near Negombo city is also surrounded by extensive mangrove swamps and attracts a wide variety of water birds including cormorants, herons, egrets, gulls, terns and other shorebirds.

As the sun dips below the horizon, the Negombo Lagoon transforms into a canvas of mesmerizing colors, painting a tranquil backdrop that perfectly complements the tranquil atmosphere. Whether you’re a nature lover seeking solace, a cultural explorer eager to engage with local life, or a photography enthusiast looking for captivating frames, the Negombo Lagoon promises an enriching experience that lingers in your memories long after your visit.

Exploring the lagoon is an adventure in itself.
