Get the city on one side and the sea on the other at Galle Face Green, the city's green lung. The largest open space in the urban area, it sits between the busy financial district and the ocean. Once used as an official sports area, with horse racing, a golf course, and rugby and cricket pitches, the park now serves as a blank canvas for locals and tourists to indulge in their favorite activities, surrounded by extensive views of the ocean. Use our Colombo day trip planning site to add Galle Face Green and other attractions to your Colombo vacation plans.

I was really pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable it was to visit here. I came here for sunset and I highly recommend coming here at a similar time. When you arrive you will be faced with dozens of kites which makes for a great visual. It's full of families with kids so had a great energy. There is also a bunch of restaurants and stalls to get a snack or a big curry. 1 of my favourite places in Colombo.
It's a nice place to go during sunset. There are lot of small food stalls where you can eat street food. You can find people walking here, children playing in park and lot of tourist too near the water. Loved the kites on the beach. Never seen such nice big kites and are also not expensive. Took one with me back home and is still there. In all a nice place to go to in Colombo to watch a beautiful sunset and play with kites.
