About Nilaveli Beach

Away from the bustling areas, 16 kilometres from the city of Trincomalee, lays the long stretch of Nilaveli beach in the town of Nilaveli. The golden sands of Nilaveli beach and its calm waves are very welcoming. A buzzing tourist destination, Nilaveli beach was restored after the catastrophic 2004 tsunami. Known for its soft white sand and dazzling blue bays, the beach attracts thousands of visitors every year. Plenty of bars and restaurants line the beach, which serve an array of local and foreign delicacies. Water sports and activities like scuba diving, windsurfing, diving and surfing are thrilling options that are available at Nilaveli.  Especially for children, the beach is ideal place to build sandcastles, roll around in the sand and splash around in the water. Snorkeling can also be done a little away from the beach, near the rocky islands off the coast.  

Many hotels are scattered around the beach offering best vistas of the ocean and the Pigeon Island. The tickets to this marine National park are available here. Immerse in the beauty of the views in this serene environment and spend your time wallowing in water or basking in the warmth of the sun.   

While planning to visit the beach, spare some time to visit also the neighbouring city Trincomalee which is historically as well as religiously important. On the eastern side of the beach is a rock called ‘Swami Rock' which is the watchtower of whales. 

The best time to visit the beach is between April and October, when the sun shines in its best capacity, providing a fine opportunity to obtain a beautiful sun tan. Relaxing by the beach, while witnessing the sunset across the horizon will leave one floating in a complete state of solitude and bliss.
