Men back from fishing

Negombo is one of those cities where people are always happy. White sand, modern lifestyle, a lively nightlife, hotels, guest houses, great restaurants and bars.

The most amazing thing about this city though, is its unique fish market. It’s called Lellama, which means “Place of bargain”, and it’s located north of the city lagoon.

Every day there are super chaotic fish auctions. The auction sales are messy, the voices of the fishermen and the customers are loud and aggressive. You can even negotiate with the fishermen for a fishing trip in the lagoon or the ocean.

The market comes alive at the crack of dawn, when hundreds of fishermen come back from their fishing trips and gather on the beach, right next to the fish market.

The smell is sickening, but this place is so incredible that we’re willing to overlook it. The beach is literally covered in fish, spread out to dry over tarpaulins. The market stalls sell all sorts of fish, in every color and size. The noise of the machete and the fish blood spraying everywhere are sending shivers down our spine“.
