The most Catholic town on the island - Negombo - located in the north Sri-Lanka at the mouth of the Negombo lagoon. Negombo population is about 120 thousand people. A lot of churches, temples and cathedrals, cheap cafes and delicious fruit in Negombo attract curious tourists.
The city is famous for the largest fishery. Not far from the beach, open-air runs the largest market where local merchants sell fresh fish, shrimp and shellfish.
Despite the many reviews on the Internet by travel agents that the beaches in Negombo most pure and beautiful, it is not true. Compared with the rest of Sri Lansky beaches, the beaches here are more like trash. The water near the shore is dirty due to mud and high waves, no entertainment no leisure sand strewn with all sorts of rubbish. Risks come in muddy ocean iskupnutsya mostly local.
Walking the streets of Negombo, you can plunge into the past, looking at the ruins of the ruined fort, which was built by the Dutch in 1672. The old church, the ancient cemetery and the virgin nature give a special flavor of the narrow streets.
