Located on the east coast of Sri Lanka, Trincomalee is known as one of the most beautiful natural harbors in the world. I must admit I wasn’t expecting much of it, but I fell in love the minute I arrived and realized the atmosphere was so chilled, the beaches long and sandy and perfect for a relaxing walk.
If you are planning a trip Sri Lanka, consider going to Trincomaleee – this beautiful destination is totally different from the western coast. It is growing popularity after the end of a long civil war among Sinhalese, Muslims and Tamil Tigers. Last but not least, it boasts colonial charm combined with wonderful white sand beaches and colorful Hindu temples.
I’d recommend to spend about a week in Trincomalee just to have enough time to take it easy and lay down at the beach, and take in all the nice sights and things it has to offer.
In this post, I highlight all the things to see and do to make the most of Trincomalee and share some useful information to plan your visit.
