East Coast Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka’s East Coast is best explored by boat—whether SUP-boarding with dolphins, sailing beach to beach, or ferrying to Pigeon Island for prime-time snorkeling. On canoe tours through Pottuvil Lagoon, paddlers can scan the mangroves for lizards, macaques, water buffalo, crocodiles, and sometimes even an elephant or two. The clean, shallow waters of Pasikuda Beach are ideal for families with small children. In Trincomalee, travelers can watch traditional net fishing and visit ancient Hindu temple sites that date back over two thousand years.
