Trincomalee, with its magnificent deep harbour, has for centuries been a magnet for merchants, adventurers and colonists. Although the town offers a number of interesting attractions, including a fort and the famous Hindu temple on a rock promontory above the sea, most visitors head for the legendary Nilaveli Beach, or the far less developed, though equally lovely, beach of Uppaveli.

The long and wide beaches here offer surfing, scuba diving and fishing and whale watching. This sea town is home to the Thirukonesvaram Kovil, which is one of the oldest Hindu temples in Sri Lanka.

Trincomalee is a natural deep-water harbor, which is rated as one of the finest of its kind in the world and attracted great sea farers like Marco Polo, Ptolemy and Sea Traders China and East Asia from the ancient times.
Pristine white sands, stretch far into the distance. The gentle waves slip softly to shore. The turquoise ocean seems endless as it blends into the clouds. Slowly, the golden sun lifts above the horizon – paradise at dawn? At Nilaveli Beach Hotel, this is just another ordinary morning. Located 275km from Colombo, on the North East Coast of Sri Lanka, Nilaveli is the ultimate getaway for those who wish for quiet bliss on a tropical heaven, far away from the cares of life.
