Trincomalee

Trip Planner Asia  /  Sri Lanka  /  Eastern Province  /  Trincomalee
A center of Tamil culture and language, Trincomalee suffered greatly during the 30-year civil war, but the troubles haven't dimmed the natural and cultural charms of the place. The natural harbor has abundant scenic aspects, while the waters here provide some of the world's best opportunities for spotting blue whales. Nearby beach towns are focal points of many holidays in Trincomalee, but a well-rounded itinerary can also include old Hindu temples, colonial era forts, and the nearby national park. Our Sri Lanka trip itinerary planner allows you to plan your trip to Trincomalee and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Trincomalee

Close to the restaurants and cultural sites in the center of town, the district surrounding the main train station of Trincomalee provides a number of guesthouses and a few simple hotels. Look along the coast for a far greater amount of choice, with Trinco Beach to the south offering a nice mix of urban entertainment and beachside relaxation. To the north of Trincomalee, the beach towns of Uppuveli and Nilaveli boast particularly high concentrations of hotels and guesthouses, all close to the beach, restaurants, and other amenities.
