About Mount Lavinia Colombo

Mount Lavinia Colombo is a popular neighborhood famous for beaches and nightlife. Of all places in the city, Mount Lavinia is definitely one of the most romantic ones. Not only is it 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 the area and its history. One of the most romantic things about this suburb in the Dehiwala district of Colombo is the reason behind its name. The suburb is a part of larger Dehiwala Mount Lavinia area in Colombo.

Today, Mount Lavinia House is a famous deluxe hotel. Built in colonial style, Mount Lavinia Hotel features a sun terrace, a spa, and multiple options for dining. With a private beach of its own, here you may cherish amazing views of the Colombo's skyline. The very best seafood that Colombo has to offer can be found in and around 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. A popular spot for swimming and sunbathing, here you may partake in watersports such as scuba diving for some adrenaline-pumping. Lining the beach are several small but ambient restaurants and pubs, and relaxing areas. The cabanas on the beach also 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. For a romantic and adventurous excursion, you may head to Dehiwala- Mount Lavinia Beach which is at a distance of 0.2 km, here you may enjoy dive sea shopping, i.e. deep fishing for an altogether a different experience. With a myriad of developments, this beach has plenty of activities ranging from sightseeing to sea diving that keep you hooked to the entirety of your sojourn.

Besides that, the area is home to St. Thomas College, which is one of the most prestigious primary and secondary schools in all of Sri Lanka. Quite close to the suburb 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.
