With seawaters wandered by enchanting dolphins and whales, and spectacular beaches sprinkled with fishing boats and catamarans, the region of North West Beach revolving around towns of Negombo and Kalpitiya, is full of surprises for every traveller. Negombo’s popular attraction, the Negombo Lagoon inclusive of a wetland sanctuary, has spectacularly diverse ecosystem. With a fascinating fishing industry, the town is also home to the island´s second-largest fish market. Kalpitiya is home to an exquisite marine sanctuary considered among the few pristine coral reef systems in Sri Lanka. Regular sightings of whales and dolphins in its coastal waters have given rise to Kalpitiya being a prime whale and dolphin watching destination.
