Run by: G Adventures

Reference number: ASVT

From: £779.35

Spend a week sailing along Sri Lanka’s east coast and you’ll see why this island’s starting to emerge as a must-visit destination. Stand-up paddle along deserted beaches, visit Koneswaram Temple, and snorkel in Pigeon Island National Park. When you’re ready to chill out, head back to the catamaran or to the shore where countless untouched beaches await. Don’t just listen to the travel buzz, see it for yourself.

Day 1 Negombo/Trincomalee (1D)

Arrive in time for the 11am welcome meeting at the joining point hotel. After, travel to Trincomalee and set sail, spending the night aboard the catamaran.

Day 2 Pigeon Island, Kuchchaveli & Sampur (1B, 1L, 1D)

Spend the next two days exploring the coast north of Trincomalee, with options to visit Pigeon Island, or swim on deserted jungle beaches near Kuchchaveli. Return to Sampur Bay, and opt to explore the Hindu temple, or hike in the jungles. Enjoy a beach BBQ in the evening.

Day 4 Sallitivu, Passikudah & Ilanativu (1B, 1L, 1D)

Spend the next three days discovering the beautiful coast between Trincomalee and Kalkudah. There are plenty of opportunities to get out on the water, or head to dry land to explore the Vakarai Lagoon, or beaches of Sallitivu, Passikudah and Ilanativu. Return to Dutch Bay, then enjoy a visit to the Koneswaram Temple at sunset.

Day 7 Trincomalee/Negombo (1B)
