The nearby Muthurajawela Marsh, which translates to ‘Supreme Field of Pearls’ in Sinhala, is a vast wetland area that is home to a plethora of flora and fauna including purple herons, cormorants, kingfishers, over 75 other bird species, crocodiles, monkeys and much more. The nearby town of Negombo is also the ideal destination for souvenir shopping, and the town truly comes to life during the nights, as the streets buzz with activity from handicraft shops, pubs, restaurants and bars.
