Hi there is no beach side area in Colombo City. Nothing where you can typically go the the beach. There are a few hotels with a bit of beach, like the Galle Face Hotel, but it's literally a corner. Mount Lavinia Hotel also does, but Colombo is more of the city feel. If you're staying at
The Kingsbury you will be near to the Old Dutch Hospital Shopping complex which is ok for shopping but not great. They have a few interesting shops like Barefoot and LuvSL for Sri Lankan items and restaurants. The Odel Department Store is one of the best places for shopping in Colombo. Also the Independence Arcade Mall. If you google those two you'll get an idea. They have international and local brands. Other nice shops are scattered over the city with a few malls that are pathetic. To be honest, Sri Lanka is no great shopping experience like Thailand and Malaysia. But within the island the above is where you can shop and also Galle Fort in Galle (South). Hope this helps!
