6 kms from Trincomalee lies Uppuveliis, a small and sweet village surrounded by beautifully lined palm trees and guest houses. The golden sand of the beach and sparse population and mellow ambience is what makes it one of the best hangouts. It was the famous Trincomalee’s Swami rock which had protected this small village from getting destroyed during Tsunami. There is something truly native about Uppuveli that makes it treat you like a true localite.Food lovers can have an unlimited supply of fresh sea food. You can find many excellent snorkelling opportunities. Apart from this sport you can also try your hands on other adventurous water sports such as Water-skiing and Wakeboarding which are even more exhilarating. Highlights: If you are in need of some change from beaches you can take a stroll up to the Commonwealth War Cemetery, a place where a fitting tribute is given to the servicemen who died during Trinco.
