Tips for you
This is a nice place to unwind & relax but the only downside was the army people who kept on telling us not to take any photographs. Apart from that, this is a nice place in Colombo to enjoy a nice Sun down. You can proceed to "The Galley" run by the Sri Lanka Navy. The prices here are very reasonable, but the level of service needs lots of improvement. But the food & the quantity was really good.
