Negombo is a fishing hamlet on the western coast of the island. Its close proximity to the Bandaranaike International Airport at Katunayake makes Negombo a first or last stop when visiting the island. The town was captured by the Dutch from the Portuguese in 1640 and lost in the same year and re-captured in 1644. In 1796 the British took it over. During the Dutch period Negombo was one of the most important trading ports for cinnamon, the sweetest of which grows along the coastal belt near Negombo.
The busy town of Negombo has a selection of colourful shopping arcades and interesting rustic restaurants. It boasts a rich cultural heritage with impressive Roman Catholic churches built by the Portuguese. There are also the ruins of the Old Dutch Fort along with the Dutch Cemetery are interesting sites. Other Dutch buildings that are still in use include the lagoon resthouse. The Dutch also built a network of canals from Negombo to Colombo and in the opposite direction from Negombo to Puttalam totalling a distance of 120 km.
