Overview
The Dutch Canal in Negombo was built by the Dutch to transport spices and now used by local fisherman to get to the sea.
It was at one time an important link in the transportation route which supplied the Dutch colonial administration. It runs for more than 60 miles.
Today it is an attraction for tourists and one of the more interesting ways to see the town and the surrounding area.
The canal starts from Hendala and runs up to Pamunugama. It was constructed by the Portuguese in the 17th century.
The Dutch Canal is also known in sections as the Negombo Canal or the Puttalam Canal. It was commenced by the Portuguese but completed by the Dutch and links the Kelani river north of Colombo and the Puttalam lagoon.
