Located in the vicinity of Colombo, Mt. Lavinia is a popular beach resort of Sri Lanka
Twelve kilometers from Colombo, on the road to Galle, is the beach resort of Mt. Lavinia. It lies alongside a wind-swept headland jutting into the waters of the Indian Ocean. With its white sand and calm waves, Mt. Lavinia is a popular bathing spot. The Governors House built in 1805 by Sir Thomas Maitland has now been converted into the famous Mount Lavinia Hotel.
