About the location
The port city of Trincomalee sits up in Sri Lanka’s north-east corner; trace the coastline north for 20-odd kilometres and you’ll find the petite village of Kuchchaveli and a 10-acre reserve that’s home to the Uga Jungle Beach. Cocooned in lush jungle, it opens out onto a postcard-perfect beach – all soft blonde sands and calm, swimmable waters.

Behind the resort you’ll find tropical mangroves and a bird-flecked lagoon, while nearby you can tiptoe through serene Buddhist temples and wallow in natural hot springs. The Pigeon Island Marine National Park is practically on the doorstep, with reef sharks, rays and turtles hiding among the corals. Between May and October you can hop aboard whale-watching boats, too – blue whales and pods of spinner dolphins can be spotted gliding through the waters, as well as the occasional ‘super pod’ of sperm whales.
Transfer time
50 minutes from Trincomalee airport which is a 1 hour 15 minute flight from Colombo International airport.
