A mixture of a promenade and beach with views of Colombo stretching for a few hundred metres. This area is always filled with people who are either taking a stroll or swimming in the sea. An easy location to get to.

A path stretching where the city meets the sea, Galle Face Green is a heart of Colombo life that's great for people-watching, shopping, and street snacks as you enjoy the ocean views.

The city of Colombo's primary public green space, the Green is where people of the city come in the evening or on sunny weekend days to fly kites, canoodle beneath umbrellas, play cricket, or just stroll in the salt breeze along the seaside promenade. An entirely pleasant place, and good for people-watching. The excellent Galle Face Hotel lies at its south end.
