Trincomalee

Trincomalee is a peaceful old port city located on the North east coast of Sri Lanka. Once a very popular tourist destination, it was deserted for a while due to the Sri Lankan Civil War and the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami which caused intense destruction. However, it is now slowly emerging as a favorite destination for utmost relaxation and is an ideal location for a family holiday to Sri Lanka, attracting tourists to warm, calm seas and white sandy beaches. One of the most significant features found here is the natural harbour, as the city played a major role in the maritime and international trading history of Sri Lanka, along with the largest Dutch fort in the country. The beaches are ideal for sunbathing, surfing, scuba diving, fishing and whale watching. More seriously it is home to major Sri Lankan Naval bases and an Air Force base. Visitors are not to be discouraged by the infamous history and high security of Trincomalee. It is once again a safe sunny place to enjoy a memorable holiday!
