Our first two nights will be spent in Marawila at a seafront hotel with access to a vast sandy beach. During the day we suggest you visit nearby Negombo, with its old Dutch fort gate, churches and fishing villages set at the mouth of the lagoon originally used for shipping cinnamon to the coast. You can hire a bike and follow the canal or, take an excursion into the “Dutch Channels” on a small motorboat. The Karava fishermen take out their square-sailed catamarans and go fishing for days at a time.
