Marawila situated 30km north of Negombo is known for its beautiful tranquil beaches, and secluded atmosphere with its amazing natural surroundings. Being a famous hideout for Sri Lankan honeymooners, most hotels and resorts here are housed within vast stretches of coconut estates, offering total privacy.
If you are looking for a tropical holiday away from it all, there is no better place than Marawila. Coconut plantations, freshwater lagoons, un-crowded beaches and the fishermen with their traditional sailing boats make a perfect background for a long desired holiday. Marawila offers much more. Close by you will find world-class water ski and wake board possibilities and offers rare opportunities for kite surfing and diving for beginners as well as professionals.
Marawila is famous for toddy, a light alcoholic drink collected from palm trees and tastes a bit like cider. One can see toddy tappers rope-walking from one tree top to another collecting the mild extract of the coconut flower from which toddy is brewed. Jokingly it is said that it is the oldest on-line job in Sri Lanka.
