We were here on an early Saturday morning. It was quite busy but in a good way. People were walking, exercising and sunbathing as well. Our hotel, Berjaya was right beside the beach and we had an over-bridge to reach the beach from our hotel (there was a train track under the bridge). There were a few restaurants that were literally on the beach itself.

It's a fairly long beach. There were some watersports activities happening. I remember jet skiing. Although, we didn't do any.

the beach is beautiful and has some unexploited potential. I found it ok but couldn't swim as the season for swimming was off and stream was strong and dangerous. Bars and restaurants do not offer anything special and look like expensive to me. You get annoyed by some beach boys; drug addicts look for clients and sell coconut and may keep your change. Beware, be straightforward and firm about what you want and don't want. Women, beware as well. Lots of people on weekends and holydays. I stayed two months in the area and found it rather sad and boring. I am not sure if people were friendly or hypocrit

This place is about 8 kms from central Colombo and provides good sea beach hotels within budget. The place is also dotted with shopping stores and restaurants for getting the local taste and affordable shopping.

Spices and tea could be bought from this place at very competitive prices.

Visit the beach and enjoy a drink in the shacks

Check out this place.

Right on our door step. Beaches run for miles. Clean and beautiful sand.

People pulling in nets, fishing boats pulled up on shore, restaurants every now and then.

We went here one evening last week and had a fabulous meal. It's so much better to be able to see and select you're own seafood. We will definitely be back
