The extensive East coastline offers vast unexplored golden beaches, a perfectly laid back setting for travelers looking to step off the beaten path. The East coast offers the beautifully situated seaside port of Trincomalee, with its magnificent harbour, the coastal resort of Nilaveli with its calm and clear blue water, and magnificent reefs ideal for snorkeling and swimming and the popular resort bay of Passikudah. The coastline is dotted with lesser known heritage sites and places of spiritual significance. The lagoons and inlets of the East with their water bird life and mangroves provide a different type of water experience. Further south lies the international famous surfing hotspot of Arugam Bay.
After enjoying the picturesque views and activities at Pigeon Island, we return to the shore and anchor for a few hours in the Back bay near the ThiruKoneswaram Temple. It's a lovely setting for a swim and to enjoy stand up paddle boarding and snorkeling while the lunch is served.
