East Coast

Holidays taking in Sri Lanka’s east coast are increasing in popularity as more hotels open up and the logistics of travelling there become simpler. As well as having most of the island’s best beaches, the east coast is in season during the May to September period: with flat seas and low rainfall, just as the south coast sees rougher seas and monsoon winds bringing heavy showers. The east coast beaches are generally under-developed and picture postcard pretty.

The main beach holiday destinations on the east coast are Trincomalee to the north, Passekudah in the middle and Arugum Bay to the south. All of these locations have excellent hotels and beach resorts. Outside of these areas though are miles of untouched and undeveloped coastline.
