Sailing in Negombo

Known as one of the vibrant cities in the West coast, sunny beaches in Negombo are perfect to engage in water sports. There are many conveniently located Negombo hotels which let you make the best of your beach getaway to this coastal city. Jetwing Beach is a great option available to the travellers looking for comfortable Sri Lanka beach hotels to have a good time. One of the popular outdoor activities you can engage in if you are staying at a beach-fronted hotel in Negombo is sailing.The experience is unique to Negombo as you will not be able to find these locally assembled fishing boats known as “proa” in anywhere else in the island. If you head down to the Negombo beach early morning, the spectacular sight of the proa boats reaching the land after night fishing would leave you speechless and make you yearn to try out. These impressive vessels, mostly handled by the experienced local fishermen would certainly offer you an adventurous sailing experience in the Indian Ocean.
