Trincomalee is a fascinating town with one of the world’s finest natural habours. It hosts historically remarkable places such as british-built airfield China bay and the marvelous Fort Frederick area. Buddhist and Hindu religious sights adds cultural value to this distinct location. Nearby Uppuveli and Nilaveli are two of the safest beaches in Sri Lanka. Everyone loves Pigeon Island, a pretty island and reef 1km from Nilaveli that makes for a perfect snorkeling or diving day trip.
