Sacred & Religious Sites · Beaches · Water Sports
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.
