A center of Tamil culture and language, Trincomalee suffered greatly during the 30-year civil war, but the troubles haven't dimmed the natural and cultural charms of the place. The natural harbor has abundant scenic aspects, while the waters here provide some of the world's best opportunities for spotting blue whales. Nearby beach towns are focal points of many holidays in Trincomalee, but a well-rounded itinerary can also include old Hindu temples, colonial era forts, and the nearby national park. Trincomalee is in Eastern Province. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Trincomalee and add them to your vacation plans using our Sri Lanka attractions app.
