Colombo Holidays

Colombo is the capital of Sri Lanka and acts as either the base to begin holidays or end holidays in Sri Lanka. Colombo is a cosmopolitan city, whose sophistication is in sharp contrast to the ethnic beaches and seaside villages.

Colombo is located in south-west Sri Lanka, 24 miles from the city’s airport. Colombo’s lifestyle is a mix of Sri Lankan traditions and western attributes.  Colombo holidays are based in the miles of sandy beaches like Negombo, Bentota, Kalutara, Galle and Hikkaduwa located on the south coast of Sri Lanka. Beach resorts offer a wide selection of accommodations ranging from posh resorts and hotels to budget guesthouses and apartments. The beach promenades provide numerous dining options, including shops and markets. Water sports are also immensely popular in Colombo. The nearby beaches of Bentota and Negombo offer a plethora of activities like snorkeling, diving, surfing, sailing and boat rides. Jungle treks and village excursions also feature prominently in holiday packages.
