Splendors of Ceylon Sri Lanka Mount Lavinia

About Mount Lavinia

Mount Lavinia is largely a middle class and mostly residential suburb that had until now escaped most of the damaging industrialization of neighboring cities and urban centers. Famed for its "Golden Mile" of beaches, it has often been a hot spot for tourism and laid back nightlife. It is one of the most liberal regions in Sri Lanka and plays host to the island's annual gay pride, including the famed Rainbow Kite Festival.
