East Coast Sri Lanka

The East Coast of Sri Lanka

If you are looking for beautiful white sandy beaches, colourful coral islands and clear blue seas, Sri Lanka’s East Coast should be your first pick. Especially since is, apart from Arugam Bay in the surf season, never over-crowded and still very peaceful! Called also Sri Lanka’s equivalent of the Maldives, the East Coast is distinctly different from the coastal areas of the rest of the island.



Trincomalee is a port city on the east coast of Sri Lanka, about 110 miles northeast of Kandy. The city is built on a peninsula, which divides the inner and outer harbours. It is one of the main centers of Tamil speaking culture on the island. Historically referred to as Gokanna or Gokarna it has been a sea port that has played a major role in maritime and international trading history of 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.
This sea town is home to the Thirukonesvaram Kovil, which is one of the oldest Hindu temples in Sri Lanka.

Arugam Bay

Arugam Bay

Arugam Bay is a place for surfers, watersports freaks and wildlife aficionados with mainly cheap to reasonable priced hotels and guesthouses. 
Arugam Bay is listed as one of the top ten surf points in the world. Situated on the south-east tip of Sri Lanka, Arugam Bay receives the same Antarctic winter swells that hit Indonesia 's southern shores in the middle of the year. The best time of the year for surf is between May and November when the predominant wind is offshore for at least the first half of the day.
Whether you want to dine on the beach in view of the sea or watch the world pass by from a sidewalk cafe, the cuisine of Arugam Bay offers just what you're looking for. A stroll along Main Street will take you past many traditional Sri Lankan restaurants serving some of the best rice and curry on the island.
