Flowing through the heart of the city, Dutch Canal once acted as an important transportation and trading route. Today, the long canal still allows transportation, but mostly for tourists looking for a unique way to explore the city. Various tour operators conduct boat tours on the canal, which typically include several stops along the way and end at Negombo Lagoon. Alternatively, approach a local boatman to inquire about a tour. To visit Dutch Canal and get the most from your holiday in Negombo, create itinerary details personal to you using our Negombo itinerary planner.

Dutch Canal reviews
A place with a lot of potential but unfortunately it is unbelievable dirty and stinky. We have done a boat tour also trough the Lagoon, but it is not worth the money. More beautiful places to see in..... more »
It’s ok but for a Dutchman it is nothing special to look at. But than again it is’nt either when you are from somewhere else more »
A long canal which goes to Chilaw. Can have boat ridings with beautiful surrounding
Its OK! Nothing special about it unless there's someone out o tell you about the history of the canal network and you are naturally interested in irrigation system and historical creations. . . .
