Trincomalee

Sri Lanka's Eastern Coast has a unique charm of its own. Its deep turquoise seas fringed by white sandy beaches are a delight for water sports enthusiasts. The port town of Trincomalee , Nilaweli, Kalkudah. Pasekudah are its more famous tourist centres.

Trincomalee is famed for its natural harbour. Described by Admiral Lord Nelson as the finest harbour in the world when he visited aboard HMS Seashore in 1770. It is ranked as the world's 5 th largest natural harbours. During the Second World War the harbour became the base for the combined East Asian Fleet of the Allied Powers. It is the ideal beach resort for beach addicts between April and November when the sea is at its best.

Located at the mouth of Sri Lanka 's longest river Mahaveli Ganga, Trinco's most famous landmark is Fort Fredrick , a century and a half of British fortifications can be found here. The cliff known as Swami Rock on the tip of Fort Fredrick 's promontory is associated with a tragic romantic tale woven around a Dutch maiden who is believed to have jumped to her death from this spot seeing her fickle lover sailing away.

The Thirukoneswaram kovil which stands on the top most pinnacle of the Swamy Rock is a highly venerated Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva. The most famous and beautiful beaches on the East Coast is Nilaveli, situated at the centre of the 30 km strand of beach which runs uninterrupted from north of Trinco, Close to Nilaveli is Red Roc k Beach- an estuary perch and pinkish colour boulders.

A short boat ride off the beach and you visit Pigeon Island (boat services available).About 11 km from west of Trinco are the Kanniyai Hot Springs, sacred to Hindus who believe them to be a creation of God Vishnu.The Dagoba enshrining the hair relics of the Buddha Triyai dating back to 8 th Cen...AD is a short distance from Trinco's coast. Some of the beach territory is still unexplored. A school of blue sperm whales made their habitat off the coast, and the shallow water near the beach have some exquisite coral formations. Passekudah Bay with its wide sandy beach and a reef protected sea is an ideal place for children and wind surfers and water skiers.
