Besides the spellbinding beach views and palatable dishes, Negombo is also popular for shopping. Here’s a breakdown of the shopping experience offered by this little town.

Last minute clothes shopping

Negombo is only minutes away from the Bandaranaike Airport thus is the best place to get everything you need before the start of your trip to this exotic island, from beachwear to summer hats and etc. Shopping centers like Fashion Bug, LUV SL and Molly Boulevard are some the options you can choose from in Negombo.

Last minute souvenir shopping

In Negombo Sri Lanka, hotels offer gift shops with a collection of stunning jewelry and souvenirs. Ranging from leather bags, pouches, wooden elephants, seashell souvenirs and so much more, Negombo will help you find the perfect gift. Apart from hotel gift shops, LUV SL and 4 Seasons are other places with some nice stuff.

The fish market

The Negombo fish market is an impressive sight as it is right on the beach and in close proximity of most beach hotels such as Hotel J Negombo. Thus if you want to taste freshly caught exotic seafood, this is where you should go. The prices in the market are also quite reasonable and are often negotiable.

Tea shopping

Ceylon tea is known around the world for its exotic flavour and classic texture and is definitely worth taking back from your trip. Get your hands on some of Sri Lanka’s best tea at Tea Zone, O.K Negombo Craft Jeweller or Dewon Tea Shop.
