Beira Lake is in the heart of Colombo. 

During the colonial era the lake was used to transport goods within the city.

The lake has two distinct bodies of water: a smaller lake bordering Navam Mawatha

and a larger lake bordering D.R. Wijewardena Mawatha ( formerly McCullum Road ).

The smaller lake is a popular recreational area.

The two lakes are connected by a narrow canal running through Slave Island.

The lake empties into the Indian Ocean at Galle Face.
