Trincomalee has a lot to offer visitors
Trincomalee is a charming tiny town on Sri Lanka’s east coast. Trincomalee is one of Sri Lanka’s greatest beaches, with gorgeous white sand. The east coast is coming up, and it’s a lot quieter than the south, which is a great incentive to go. Wildlife, hilltops, and rock formations abound in Trincomalee. Take at least two or three full days in Trincomalee since there is a lot to see and do.
Nilaveli Beach is a popular tourist destination in Sri Lanka. Rent a motorbike for the duration of your stay (1500 LKR per day) and visit the neighboring beaches. Because the east coast is significantly calmer than the rest of the country, riding a motorcycle here is not an issue.
Nilaveli Beach is a lovely beach where you can simply relax and unwind for the day. Locals from all over the country come to Nilaveli on the weekends to enjoy the white sand. It’s much better to simply look for any little roads leading to the shore, as this will lead you to the most remote locations.
Whale watching is quite popular in Trincomalee. In the opposite season, this is also a popular activity in Mirissa. Trincomalee’s whale season lasts from March to August.
Sri Pathrakali Amman Kovil
Sri Pathrakali Amman Kovil is a Hindu temple located in Sri Pathrakali, India. This vibrant Hindu temple is conveniently placed in the heart of town. It may even be your fortunate day to witness an actual ceremony.
You might come across a lot of dried fish stalls on your walk-through town to the temples or Fort Frederik.
Trincomalee town is full of authentic local life, where people don’t have to rely on tourists to survive, which is a stark contrast to the south.
Fort Frederik is worth visiting
The Portuguese erected Fort Frederik, which is still standing today. The Sri Lankan military uses it these days, but it is open to the public. Because much of the fort is hidden by trees, you may view numerous deer and avoid the heat of the day.
Pigeon Island is a wonderful place to snorkel. A little island with crystal blue water and a small white sand beach is just a 10-minute boat journey from Nilaveli Beach. For a morning or afternoon visit, Pigeon Island is ideal. Make sure you have your snorkeling equipment with you.
