About Muthurajawela Marsh, Negombo

This is one spot where the 2004 tsunami beckons. Literally translating to Supreme Field of Pearls, this Negombo attraction is a wetland perched southerly on the city’s lagoon. A creation of the Portuguese, this canal was previously the ground of a very rich lands reaping rice. Today, the marsh and wetlands are home to some beautiful species of birds including kingfishers, herons, cormorants and many more. There are guided boat rides available here, for further information. The place has a very relaxing vibe.

Muthurajawela Marsh, Negombo Reviews

  • Can go in the main road, but if you are going in a bicycle there is a pretty much fun route to get there.. friendly and kind staff, offered us tea. 1600 to get a boat, guide and the boatsman was really patient a knowledgeable.. highly recommended for school students to learn about wetlands.

  • Starting point for a relaxed boat ride along the canal and in lagoon. If you are lucky can spot a crocodile. Boats have a cover against the sun. Unfortunately as it is a highly populated area, there tends to be some garbage floating along the shore.

  • Muthurajawela is dying due to this government's wrong policy of putting garbage on it. So sad.

  • Provides good education on wetlands

  • A good place
