Holidays in East Coast Sri Lanka

For those looking to venture to a more undiscovered Sri Lankan beach, the east coast of the island is starting to wake up, and welcome new boutique hideaways such as Jungle Beach near Trincomalee and Uga Bay further south near Pasikuda. Relax on the naturally beautiful, unspoilt beaches, and enjoy a few days of total chill...as well as many fantastic diving and snorkelling sites. Between the months of May and October you may even catch a glimpse of the passing whale pods as they migrate south.

The waters around Trincomalee are inhabited by dolphins and whales including the gigantic Blue Whales, Bryde’s Whale and the Sperm Whale as well as spinner and bottle nosed dolphins have been spotted here. Whale and dolphin spotting excursions are offered during the season from May to October when the waters are sufficiently calm to go into the deep seas.
