    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Nilaveli Beach, Nilaveli Sri Lanka
    Nilaveli Beach is arguably one of the best beaches in Sri Lanka. Nilaveli Beach lies north of Uppuveli Beach in Trincomalee. It’s a short 20 minute drive to get from one beach to the other. It’s quieter and more secluded than Uppuveli Beach, and the clear water makes it the best beach in Trincomalee in my opinion. Similarly, to Nilaveli Beach, Uppuveli is a long, sandy beach with clear waters and no waves.Located about 10 minutes outside of Trincomalee lies the small beach village of Uppuveli.
