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. Nilaveli is in Eastern Province.
