This beach is undoubtedly one of the most stunning in the entire country. Not only are there plenty of restaurants to choose from for a quick bite or a leisurely meal, but it's also just a short drive from the city, making it an ideal spot for a relaxing evening. Additionally, it's a romantic location for couples to stroll along the shoreline hand in hand. As an added bonus, I wanted to share some vintage photos of the area from 2011.

The City of Colombo boasts of an exquisite beach that is perfect for a family outing, especially with young ones. The beach is adorned with a variety of restaurants and bars that cater to various tastes and preferences. However, it is important to exercise caution as some beggars with erratic behavior may also frequent the area. Nonetheless, the beach is a natural wonder that exudes beauty and charm, making it an ideal destination for a relaxing day out.

In the vicinity of this particular shoreline, there are numerous eateries that specialize in seafood and a lively nightlife to indulge in. While it may not be considered the most exceptional stretch of sand in Sri Lanka, it certainly doesn't fall into the category of the worst either. Unfortunately, the beach has been affected by pollution stemming from urban activities, particularly the budget-friendly accommodations that are scattered around its perimeter.

The beach maintained by the Mount Lavinia hotel is a pristine and serene paradise for those seeking tranquility. I was absolutely enamored by its immaculate beauty and found myself lost in its captivating charm for hours on end. While it may not be the ideal destination for sports enthusiasts, it is perfect for anyone who desires an undisturbed escape. In contrast, the public beach is not quite as idyllic. It is plagued by the constant presence of local tour and restaurant agents who often prove to be less than genuine, causing a great deal of disturbance and hindrance to one's enjoyment.
