Sri Lanka Wreck Dive Tours Trips Packages Best Locations

The beaches of Negombo are beautiful! It's not too far from Colombo either. Just 35 Km or an hour and a half away. The stretch of beach or the "strip" is located just a few miles north of the Negombo town. For many reasons we really love this place. It's spotlessly clean, has a well maintained road leading to all the major hotels in the area and really FUN diving! If someone asks us to put our Negombo experiences in a nutshell, we'll say "Raining Fish!".

The dive locations in Negombo are segregated into two locations. The closer dive sites about 5 to 8 Km away from the shore and the further "third" reef (about 22 Km away).

The Third Reef - The Last Frontier

Good things are hard to get. For the best diving in Negombo visit the beautiful Third Reef 22 KM into deep sea from where no land can be seen.

The closer dive sites (Second Reef).

A lovely dive site despite the abundance of abandoned fish nets! Snappers, Cuttlefish, Bullseyes (Glass Fish), Sweetlips, Groupers. Sometimes the visibility is bad because there are so many of these Bullseye dudes around. Carry a torch even during the day time. You can "conduct" the Bullseye school with a wave of your torch! It's cool! Click here to see the huge Grouper we met there one day!

Route 66 is a oceanic highway heading North West. Sticking to the speed limit is recommended due to heavy traffic. Click here for pictures.
