North Eastern Sri Lanka : Trincomalee
Trincomalee is a city in North Eastern Sri Lanka. Trincomalee has a very nice beach even during the summer.
The Bus Station is located directly in Trincomalee across the street from the clock tower and the market. The train station is about 1km North of town.
Trincomalee is a very compact town so walking is a suitable way to see the town. For longer trips rickshaws are available at nearly every corner.
Pigeon Island Marble Beach
A snorkelling trip to Pigeon Island is a must. There are local boats that will take you to this island for a fee of about US$30 (return). Snorkelling is a great way to see the abundant sea life. Sadly the coral is not respected by the locals. Snorkelling should be done with great caution as some areas are very deep, up to a thousand metres in depth.
