About Mount Lavinia in Colombo

Of all places in Colombo, Mount Lavinia is definitely one of the most romantic. Not only is Mount Lavinia known for its wild nightlife and a seaside beach that is known as the ‘Golden Mile’, but for its freedom and passion as well. Every year since 2005, Mount Lavinia hosts the Gay Pride parade and Rainbow Kite Festival. These flavors of freedom, equality, romance, and passion have long been a part of Mount Lavinia and its history. One of the most romantic things about this suburb in the Dehiwala district of Colombo is the reason behind its name.

Today, Mount Lavinia House is a famous deluxe hotel. The very best seafood that Colombo has to offer is in Mt. Lavinia Beach located in the outskirts of Colombo city. This beautiful strip of sandy beach has a lot to offer. Frequented by the locals as well as the tourists visiting Colombo, the best thing about Mount Lavinia Beach is its exquisite seafood. Lining the beach are several small but ambient restaurants and pubs. There are also relaxing areas on the beach itself. The cabanas on the beach all serve delicious seafood such as lagoon prawns and a wide variety of sea fish. A sunset by the beach and a romantic outdoor dinner or a candlelit dinner by the beach underneath the starry skies. Either way, it is a very romantic setting for any couple’s dinner plans.

This besides, Mount Lavinia plays host to St. Thomas College, which is one of the most prestigious primary and secondary schools in all of Sri Lanka. Quite close to Mount Lavinia and its suburban setting are a number of popular tourist spots such as Dehiwala Zoo and Attidiya Bird Sanctuary. There is of course, no dearth of hotels in ‘Galkissa’ at any time of the year. With so many great places to visit and a romantic backstory to boot, this place is well worth the trip.
