6 Things You Will Love in Colombo’s Port City.

Colombo has seen rapid development in many avenues over the years. One such development that has caught the attention of many Colombo folk and foreigners alike is the Port City project that has partially opened up for activities to the public. What kind of activity you ask? Well, here are 6 that you will love!


One of the first activities to be opened to the public, luxury yachting at the Colombo Port City Marina has quickly become the go-to destination for many people to spend the weekend with family and friends. 

The Galle Face Green accentuated by the backdrop of the new development projects gives a sense of satisfaction and appreciation to how progressive the city has become and certainly provides a different take on the bustling city. Couple that with the company of your friends and family, and you have got yourself the perfect weekend right here in Colombo.

Operated by Sail Lanka, you have the opportunity to select from various packages, such as a 3-hour, 5-hour, and 7-hour cruise. Sail Lanka also gives you the freedom to customise your own cruise to fit the occasion!

Call 071 440 5000 for inquiries.


Want to let your inner Happy Gilmore out? Well, the Colombo Golf Academy (CGA) has officially kickstarted operations in the Colombo Port City. The golf range is just past the Colombo Port City Marina, facing the Indian Ocean, making it one of the more unique ranges on the island.

Having a swing of the club is ideal if you go with a few friends! It doesn’t matter if you are an absolute beginner or a PGA pro, the range is all about giving you a unique experience while also giving you a taste of the gentleman’s game.

The cost per person/per hour is LKR 2500 (inclusive of equipment and golf balls). Call 076 916 3346 for inquiries.


Entertainment in the Port City is one of the newer additions and has quickly gained notoriety with top international DJs and musicians. Of course, this has still not caught on since it was opened for entertainment events a few months back.

However, the most recent NYE 2021 celebrations proved to be a great success, thus making way for greater things to come. Who knows, maybe we might see Coldplay performing at the venue before they retire!

4.Leisure and Recreation

While not yet fully opened to the public, we anticipate that a few of the park areas within the Colombo Port City will be opened somewhere in the middle of this year. These parks are supposedly being designed to bring about some form of tranquillity amid all the commercial activity in Colombo City. In other words, a perfect place to escape the rat race of the city limits during the evening hours of the day.

The parks also work as a great place for fitness activity as well. The wide walking/running tracks and the open spaces are perfect for solo and group fitness activities. So, lacing up a pair of shoes and burning calories while admiring the Indian Ocean on one side and the bustle of Colombo city is now a possibility.

Similarly, the Colombo Port City Beach is also anticipated to open up this year, which will also include several water sports. From paddleboarding to fishing, you have quite a list to choose from. 

With water sports also comes several places for relaxation and recreation too, making it suitable for everyone.

6. ATV track

The Colombo Dunes ATV track consists of three 2-kilometre racetracks running over an area of about 05 acres in Port City. Uniquely, the adventure is to drive the ATVs through sand dunes and experience a one-of-a-kind beach ride on Sri Lanka’s only artificial beach.

In order to book the port city ATV track, you can visit https://crateadventure.com and log in by registering. Select the date and time slot you are comfortable with.

Of course, a lot of the elements are yet to be revealed, but from what is already opened to the public, the Colombo Port City looks to be a place of great things to come!
