About Arisimale Beach

Arisimale Beach lies on an isolated location which is actually about 50 kms North of Trincomalee in the town of Pulmude. In Tamil arisi means rice and malai means mountain. Thus this is the ‘Mountain of Rice’ in Tamil. The reason for name is in the sand. This beach is made of extremely large particles of sand which is relevant to the size of a rice seed. Due to the far distance from Trincomalee, this beach is kind of unoccupied and is devoid of shops and hotels. Beach is clean and the water is crystal clear but due to extreme heat in this region, the ideal time to visit the beach may be morning or evening.This beach is deeply buried in the Sri Lankan history. Thapassu and Balluka, the two merchants who received some hair from Buddha is said to have landed at Arisimale Beach where they traveled up to Tiriyaya to deposit it in a shrine.
