The vibe in Sri Lanka is relaxed; there isn't a huge amount to sight-see, rather plenty to immerse in: markets, cafés, fishing villages. The palm-fringed beaches are wide and relatively empty; the waves are a surfer's paradise, the writer elaborates. There's the odd army barrack - a sign of events recently passed. A few resorts are starting to pop up but accommodation tends to be basic, homely. It's still all about the local people and the simple life here - and that's what makes the east coast a joy to visit. The writer further reports that Trincomalee, Pasikudah Beach, Nilaweli Beach, Batticaloa Lagoon, Vakarai Beach, Minneriya National Park, Navalady Beach, Arugam Bay are some that should not be missed when in Sri Lanka.
About 40 minutes inland from Trincomalee, you'll find Minneriya National Park - where you could see incredible wildlife. It is here that the island's famous 'Gathering' occurs in the dry season - where wild elephants come from miles around to gather by the reservoir, HuffPost Lifestyle further adds.
The Batticaloa Lagoon, Known as the 'Land of the Singing Fish' - legend says you can hear the music coming from the water under the Kallady Bridge at full moon - Batticaloa is a peaceful place to be, describes HuffPost.
