Travel North away from the airport up the bustling main road that runs parallel to the coast,, passing through small towns with such names as Nainamadama,Wennappuwa and Katuneriya eventually after some 40 Kilometres we turn towards the sea along small un-adopted lanes to reach the small fishing settlement at Marawila. The area has been heavily influenced by various foreigners over centuries and many of the local population are catholic, so don't be surprised to see a few large churches in this area fondly known locally as little Rome. The local folk still derive their meagre income from the sea and small holdings, although increasingly many commute to the small factories that are springing up providing much needed work. The beach along this stretch of coast is sandy and wide, ideal for sun worshipping and beach games.
The quiet fishing village of Marawila is just a short distance from Negombo and is set amidst incredible tropical greenery. This is the perfect destination for couples and families looking for a relaxing holiday in the great outdoor.
Marawila is a fishing village located 67km north of Colombo, midway between Negombo and Chilaw. The fine sandy and wide beach coupled with the dense jungle that attracts many rare species of migrant birds has made a tourist attraction.
Marawila is another humble fishing settlement of Sri Lanka which affords the sights of fishermen mending their fishing nets, repairing their wooden outrigger boats that would go fishing in the night by stars.
A quite a few large churches along the road from Negombo to Marawila and in the areas surrounding Marawila with its catholic community testify to the Portuguese heritage of the area.
