Sri Lanka's East Coast

Sri Lanka's east coast is still largely undeveloped, and is slowly emerging as a superb destination to visit with a range of new hotels being built and relatively few tourists. It is also perfect weather wise during the summer months, when the monsoon hits the south and west coasts.

The east coast is very different to the rest of Sri Lanka with predominately Tamil speaking people, and a different weather pattern meaning it is perfect in the summer months. The capital is Trincomalee which blends a dash of colonial history and the color of Hindu temples and stunning coastal scenery. Down the coast you will find sleepy coastal palm-fringed beaches, although there is widespread construction centerd around the town of Passekudah. However, we know the perfect untouched areas making a visit to the east coast extremely worthwhile compared to the more touristy areas in the south and west coasts.

We've been following the situation closely and with the recent changes in security, we're pleased to say that we can support the people of Sri Lanka and once again offer trips to this beautiful country. To encourage visitors to return, the Sri Lankan government are now offering free visas on arrival to key countries (including the UK) beginning August 2019.
