DAY 01: DEPARTURE

Local Fishermen on Negombo beach in Sri Lanka throw out their fishing nets in the air, clean and pack them together for tomorrow’s early catch. Opportunistic seagulls and crows’ touchdown the beach and hover in the sky, urgently looking for fresh fishy snacks. The wind sweeps up the sand from the tropical beach next to Negombo fish market and gently scratches the skin whilst walking.

Some of the fishermen have just only arrived from an early day search for fresh fish. They catch crabs, lobster, and prawns in the lagoon next to Negombo and fresh fish in the open waters of the Indian Ocean. Dried fish is a commonly added ingredient in the national dish of Sri Lankan rice and curry. It’s often added because it’s a good source of proteins. The dried fish from Negombo fish market first gets salted and then shipped all over the island to be sold in shops & local markets.

Negombo fish market is a unique and cool place in the country to visit on your backpacking trip. It’s one of the most authentic fresh fish markets in Sri Lanka. It’s a most recommended place to visit for when you find yourself in the area. Negombo fish market is closed every Sunday. But you can consider to visit it on Sunday if you want to avoid the big crowd. A quiet day can be great for walking around in peace between the dried fish on the beach and for enjoying the view of the ocean.
