Old Colombo Road, Negombo
Open 24 hours
There is a coastal road from Colombo to Negombo which, while not especially fast, is really quite scenic and worth a drive. It begins as you take the bridge out of Mattakuliya and proceed along the canal. It then continues along the coast all the way to Negombo.
From Colombo Fort, get onto Sea Beach Road (past the port) and just keep going straight (down a road that narrows) till you pass Mattakkuliya and take the bridge out of Colombo. Proceed along the Canal Road, you'll eventually be steered across and onto the beach road. Then keep going till Negombo. Google Maps has this road in the ocean but it's not.Report Inaccuracy
