Top Beaches

East Coast

Sri lanka

Uppuveli and around

Just a few kilometers north of Trincomalee town, village of Uppuweli is currently developed, though it remains little more than a modest.

Nilaveli and around

Another 10 km north of Uppuveli,the settlement of Ninaweli, home to another fine stretch of largely deserted beach. Guesthouses, hotels and beach activity centers are sparsely between drive along Upppuweli to Nilaweli. If you like very quiet days spent looking at wave, beach combing, snorkeling and hanging with the locals, Nilaveli is perfect. If not, then you’re likely to find out yourself.


Few Kilometers offshore from Nilaveli, Pigeon Island which is protected as a Marine national park is home to one of the east coast of coral reef. Most tourists visit is to enjoy the island’s best snorkeling experience. All the live coral lies on the sea facing side of the island, some 40 m off the beach in the water around 2 m deep. Tickets to visit Pigeon Island are sold at the small office count on the beach grounds. Boats to reach the island visit can be easily hired on the beach next to the ticket office. Also have snorkeling equipment for rent.

Passekudah and Kalkudah Beaches

The twin beaches of Passekudah and Kalkudah were the east coast’s most developed tourist destinations. Developed as the latest cluster of hotels, resorts,and drawing a steady string of tourists to this corner of island. Now the area is in the middle of a second, and even more dramatic.

Passekudah Bay

Highlighted as a special tourist development part in the late. Formerly deserted arc of Passekudah Bay is now ringed with new resort hotels and more under construction, which are already well on the way to changing. Most visitors stay in their hotels, although water sports can be arranged with operators with seasons.

Kalkudah Beach

Kalkudah village looks much of its original character, with much quiet budget accommodation strung out along the main street.

Kalkudah Bay also so far at least, with a superb fine golden sandy and unspoiled, although a couple of plots of land have already been fenced off for future development.
