The port town of Trincomalee, or Trinco as it is more affectionately known, stands on a finger of land jutting out into the Indian Ocean. This headland protects one of the worlds largest natural harbour’s, encompassing 53 Kilometres (33 miles) of shoreline, and many small bays within the main bay. Admiral Nelson called it the "finest harbour in the world" although, after Colombo, it is now the second most important port.

The clock tower, bus stand and fish market are all close to one another on the Fort Fredrick side of town, and a short walk down Dock Yard road will bring you to Stephen’s Cemetery. Just out of Trincomalee on the Anuradhapura road are the famous Kenniyai Hot Springs. Hindus who come perform certain ceremonies for the dead revere the seven wells here.
