Mount Lavinia Beach, Sri Lanka : the untold stories


Mount Lavinia Sri Lanka

Mount Lavinia Beach, Colombo, Sri Lanka, just 15 minutes drive up on to the south of Colombo, way to the city of Galle. A turn down the path in Mount Lavinia, a suburb of Colombo  and you come across this hidden little patch , a stretch that mesmerizes any city dweller.


Mount Lavinia Beach is not a replica of any  ‘ city beach’ , To me it’s a hybrid of urban hype and laid back  seclusion that many beaches cannot match up to. Although it is commonly known for a stroll, or a dip, what’s known does not do justice to the many      ” little”  untold Stories.

  • Mount Lavinia,

is one of the friendliest beaches that you will find close to the  City of Colombo. With  warm salty water gushing  to the shores,  I ‘d rather opt for a spinning jog than a stroll. What more… it is a fantastic place to unwind, stretch and try all your yogic positions early morning.

  • If you are a lover of the sea, you can opt to go diving with trained divers…Mount Lavinia Beach Sri Lanka Yoga Saturday morning
