This coast of long white beaches, great surf and mangrove lagoons has been largely off the tourist routes during civil unrest. Now it’s the time to visit and not much crowd can be seen there. Particularly tourists welcome warmly by local people. May to September is the time to go for the weather, activities and general up keep of the beach cleanliness. If you go to east coast there are so many places to visit. See the below set of places that takes tourists more because of its beautifulness.
Arugam lies on an elephant corridor and feeding on the beru grass. This tiny fishing village is fast becoming the young and trendy hiding place with the best surf in Sri Lanka and some would say, South Asia. Here German kite surfing companies and enthusiasts take courses to learn this new extreme sport with a wide sweeping beach it is good for swimming virtually year round. For surfing April to September will see the “surfers” arrive here. The surfing is followed by the fishing season.
When you are heading to north you will come to Batticaloa in the center. Tourist can enter to experience a very different Sri Lanka. It is the gateway to Trincomalee. Around batticaloa there are several places to visit such as Lahugala National Park, Gal Oya national park… This is very beautiful place that lots of people come in and enjoy. The temperature would be high and long day light can be seen with clear sun light.
Nilaveli Beach - Nilaveli-situated at a distance of 271 km from Colombo-15 km north of Trincomalee is a prime beach resort on the East coast. The beach has ample water sports facilities including fishing and sea angling. Nilaveli is ideally suited for sun bathing and diving. A few meters from the coast is a small rocky island good for snorkeling.
Nilaveli Beach, Sri Lanka is one of the admirable and attractive tourism locations in the Sri Lanka with the seductive white sandy beaches ‘s and the crystal clear waters. Nilaveli Beach, Sri Lanka also famous as one of the finest beaches in the country among both foreigners and locals.
This calm Nilaveli Beach, Sri Lanka stretches about 6km up to Uppuweli, Sri Lanka.
Pigeon Island is one of the popular destination 300m from the Nilaveli Beach, Sri Lanka, is famed for snorkeling & diving.
This could be the best beaches of the East Coast and excellent conditions for diving and snorkeling. Just off shore lies Pigeon Island which has superb coves home to the Blue Rock pigeon and a shaley beach for sunbathers looking to escape for the day. At weekends the island is noisy and full of locals partying. Nilaveli communities are extremely friendly and many will wave as they work in the local farms and tobacco fields. The hot springs at Kanniyai are just 8km away and known for their therapeutic properties. There is some controversy as to their Hindu origin but the 7 natural hot spring wells each have a different temperature. Not for swimmers but be sure to get wet!
This is also known as Trinco by the locals, it is one of the World’s best deep harbors’ and the reason why many Sri Lankans speak English. Following settlement by the Portuguese, then the Dutch, the British ousted them both and colonized Ceylon. As the East was home to the Tamil Tigers, the British Peacekeeping force took residency in 1940’s at Orr’s Hill. With spectacular views of the harbor, the Head office has now been converted into a Hotel.
Trinco is now a mixture of marine and military post, thriving market, economic centre and wonderful beaches and diving. The better beaches are 20 minutes North in Nilaveli.
