Nilaveli

Trip Planner Asia  /  Sri Lanka  /  Eastern Province  /  Nilaveli
(4.1/5 based on 1,300+ reviews for 6 attractions)
Things to do: nature, adventure, beaches
The coastal resort town of Nilaveli draws visitors with its beaches, dive spots, and seaside hotels. A little larger and less cutesy than Uppuveli, Nilaveli consists of the main coastal highway and the hotels and restaurants that sit on the small roads leading off from it. A few temples dot the landscape inland, adding a little cultural interest and intrigue to those weary of the beaches, but the focus of Nilaveli tourism really does lie on the seashore. Dive sites around the offshore islands boast a great range of aquatic life, and you'll find a number of dive schools in Nilaveli itself, keen to show you the ropes. Our Sri Lanka holiday planner allows you to schedule your trip to Nilaveli, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

Where to stay in Nilaveli

Nilaveli's lodgings lie between the coastal Nilaveli Road and the sea. Looking to outdo one another for sea views, the hotels here have plenty to offer by way of location, with none situated too far from the sand. Additional facilities vary depending on price, with some particularly well appointed retreats offering private pools, spas, and veranda restaurants, while the humbler options let the coastline speak for itself.
