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.
