Discover the remote beauty and beaches of Sri Lanka’s northeast coast
Sri Lanka is famed for its stunning beaches but the untouched stretches of white sand along the northeast coast are even wider and whiter than their southern counterparts.
The beaches are at their best in the summer months, making them perfect for a family holiday and some serious relaxation. If you want to take a break from the sand and surf though, explore the temples of Trincomalee or enjoy a spot of snorkelling or whale watching. If you like scuba diving, then head to Pigeon Island – this marine park and sanctuary is just off the coast and a paradise for scuba divers.
Pasikudah is a lovely sheltered cove with a protective reef rolling out across it, making it perfect for swimming and one of the safest stretches of coastline. The reef itself is home to plenty of tropical fish and beautiful coral formations to explore. Yet the true beauty of the cove is revealed on a sunset sailing tour by catamaran. From your boat you can sip a cocktail as the panoramic views of the cove unfold.
