THINGS TO DO IN Marawila

Marawila is located on the west coast of Sri Lanka and about 55 km north of capital Colombo. This quaint village boasts unspoiled tranquil beaches, shady palm groves and crystal clear ocean waters.

Though not too commercialized and less touristy compared to other coastal areas Marawila is ideal for a relaxing holiday and as a base to explore the small towns around the area.  The little village itself is rather rural though the surrounding areas offer fairly comfortable accommodation options with modern facilities. There is much to explore around the area and you can even take on a short excursion to popular attractions in the nearby towns of Chilaw and Negombo. You can even explore the small fishing settlements in the area and watch the fishermen take their `Oruvas`, a local version of the outrigger canoe, out for fishing in the ocean. The dense forest areas are ideal for bird watching and nearby towns boast temples and churches to explore.
