TRINCOMALEE (more commonly known as 'Trinco') is a prime eco tourism venue which is located on the northeast coast of Sri Lanka and offers some of the country's most attractive beaches such as 'Uppuveli' and 'Nilaveli'.
Fine white-sand and crystal clear water provides an irresistible combination that won't fail to disappoint any visitor who loves the beach! Snorkelling around the famous Pigeon island just off Nilaveli beach is widely recognised to be a 'must-do' activity during a stay in Trinco, Sri Lanka. WINDSURFING is also a very popular activity in the area.
Away from the beaches, the town has one of the most interesting and complex colonial histories in the whole of Sri Lanka, with its ownership changing between the king of Kandy, the Dutch, the British and the French on a number of different occasions!During the recent war, the area's beauty continued to attract many travellers and since the peace resolution in 2002, visitors have increased in their numbers even more.
