Palagathura known as the New Negombo Beach North
In the last 12 months Palagathura junction has been transformed and now comprises of some of the best bars & restaurants in Negombo. However compared with the rest of Negombo, they offer you much better quality and lower prices than the established bars like Lords, Rodeo & Serendip which are situated near to Jetwing Blue.
On the land side of the road is the delightful family restaurant run by 2 twin brothers. Sunnys Restaurant with its modern setting and interesting attached art gallery. Sunny specializes in seafood and Sri Lankan rice & curry.
On the same side of the road, close to the junction is Machang (which is Sinhala for mate) which is a new bar/restaurant. This is a franchise owned by Lion beer so here you will find the cheapest beer prices on the whole strip. You can sit upstairs and watch the world go by.
Opposite Machang is Bee Beach, again newly opened and has a lovely beach setting. It’s great here for sunset watching and they have a large assortment of foods on offer – great seafood, Chinese meals, Italian style pizzas and their Sri Lankan rice & curry comes highly recommended.
We can also offer some lovely rooms at Bee Beach.
You simply cant get any closer to the beach than Bee Beach, new modern air conditioned rooms set just 20 feet from the beach in a resort with lovely beach bar & restaurant. Located 20-30 minutes from Colombo airport.
Just to the left of Bee Beach is Coco Beach, again a delightful modern beach setting. Prices are slightly higher than its neighbours. Here they specialize in seafood where you get to choose what you want and how you want it cooked. It has an open clean kitchen which gives confidence of its high standards.
Palagathura Junction is now a new buzzing scene of Negombo. If you are looking for something late at night where you can drink with the local boys and its cheap. I mean cheap! Where its just 450 rupees for gin & tonic or 350 rupees for beer then it has to be Macerena which is just the other side of Bee Beach. Macerena however doesn’t get busy til after 11pm and at weekend its normally open til the early hours.
