It is a land of miles of sun kissed beaches where you can watch the sun rise over beautiful bays, go for long walks and build castles on sandy beaches, learn of history by visiting the finest harbour, re-live colonialism by walking through Fort Frederick, experience religion and culture that are centuries old, gaze at the sun set as the boats come home laden with the days catch...this is the essence of Trincomalee.
