Attractions

Renowned for being one of the best natural deep-water harbours in the world, Trincomalee is admired for its white sandy beaches such as Nilaveli and Uppuveli. Found in the north eastern coast of Sri Lanka, “Trinco”, as it is fondly referred to, is a desirable water sports destination owing to its throngs of pristine beaches which rank among the most scenic in the island. Boasting the world’s fifth largest natural harbour, Trinco is home to its fair share of cultural and historical attractions as well.

The region’s strong Dutch influence is evident through sites such as Fort Frederick which is home to the Swami Rock, atop which the famed Koneswaram Temple is located. Dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva, the temple is one of the main sites reflecting the historical significance of Trinco. Besides this classical-medieval temple complex, the popular Lover’s Leap can also be found within the vicinity of the fort.

Adding to the distinctive natural beauty of the destination is Pigeon Island, which is a charming little rocky islet off the coast of the scenic Nilaveli Beach. Being a famous breeding ground for the iconic blue rock pigeons, it can be visited by taking a motorboat ride. Yet another point of interest among Trincomalee attractions is the group of seven hot water springs in Kanniyai. With varying temperatures, the water in these wells is believed to be rich in therapeutic value. A traveller exploring these attractions will be delighted to find Jungle Beach, a tranquil resort which lies in harmony with the surrounding natural splendour.
