  • Very nice beach. Sand looks like sand. Lot of historical value. Thapassu and bhalluka two businessman arrived to Sri Lanka in this place. They came with lord Buddha's HAIR. THEY MAKE GIRIHANDU SAYA. Buddhist aranya also there.
  • Possibly the cleanest beach I had ever seen. We went there on August 2017. The waves are somewhat strong and strong under currents at that time and not safe for kids. But I think there may be a better time than that to bath at Arisimale Beach. Pleace keep the place clean when you go there. Just leave your foot prints only !
  • One of the beautiful beach in the trinco area.
  • Arisi mean the Rice in Tamil. This beach got this name because the Sand is like Rice. A Hidden place near the pulmoddai.
  • Lovely beach. Sands like Rice. If you are bathing please be on alert.

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.
