Trincomalee and East

Trincomalee, located about 260 km away from capital Colombo, is referred to as `Trinco’ .Trinco is blessed with beautiful beaches and is mostly famed for its natural harbor, ranked as the world’s 5th largest. That has been the envy of many a colonial power which has battled for this strategic port beginning with the Portuguese in the 17th century followed by the Dutch and the British. During World War II Trincomalee was established as a naval base by the British and still continues to be used by the Sri Lankan Navy.

This beautiful region has undergone much hardship in the past as a result of the 26-years of terrorism waged by the LTTE as well as the devastating Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004. Terrorism was eradicated from the North and the East of Sri Lanka in May 2009. Recovery in these areas is now underway with renewed efforts at rebuilding lives and regaining the glory of this beautiful region making it once again an appealing holiday destination.
