For most people, Negombo is a place to sleep on their way in or out of Sri Lanka. However, there are things to explore in the town and beyond. Here is a little photo essay to inspire you to do more than sleep in Negombo!

That’s a beautiful place.
It definitely is!!
Beautiful pictures! Great photography job!
Thank you, Janis! Hope you guys are well.
Wonderful photos you really give a sense of all the different elements of the place. Thanks so much for sharing with #farawayfiles
Thank you. So glad you feel that way.
Love the first photo, but the rest won’t seem to load for me. Because I’m a technology killer*! Either way Sri Lanka is well out of my well-travelled path and it might be time to expand my horizons a little. #FarawayFiles
*Actual job description.
Oh no. Sorry about that. It could just be a browser issue. I will check on my end. Thanks! *haha!
great photos! #farawayfiles
I’m hoping to head to Sri Lanka later in the year, so gathering as much information as I can. Great photos!
I will have a couple more posts on Sri Lanka coming in March. Thanks!
I have yet to visit Sri Lanka, but would love to visit. I love the temple at the end with the feline (?) face. Thanks for joining with #FarawayFiles this week, cheers from Copenhagen, Erin
I read online it’s a dragon! Not sure though. Thanks!
Ahhh Sri Lanka! So colourful and beautiful. What gorgeous photos. I want to hop on a plane and go back straight away. We didn’t make it to Negombo last time but I would love just to see the colourful boats on the shoreline. Thanks for sharing with us on #FarawayFiles
It is definitely worth stopping there for a day or two. Thank you!
Looks like a wonderful place. I really like the last photo!
I am so glad you enjoyed the photos!
Fabulous photos, Tiffany. I particularly love the one of the fish laid out on the beach and the one of the fishing boat and its spectacular sail. Thanks for sharing on #FarawayFiles
Thank you so much. I loved the sail!
Gorgeous shots! Especially enjoyed the temple – such a beautiful place!
We keep hearing such lovely things about Sri Lanka – it needs to go onto our visit list!
There are some amazing things to see there!
Beautiful photographs! So much gorgeous architecture here 🙂
