Nilaveli-situated at a distance of 275 km from Colombo-is a prime beach resort on the East coast. The beach has ample water sports facilities including fishing and sea angling. Nilaveli is ideally suited for sun bathing and diving. Fine white-sand and crystal clear water provides an irresistible combination that won't fail to disappoint any visitor who loves the beach! Snorkelling around the famous Pigeon island just off Nilaveli beach is widely recognised to be a 'must-do' activity during a stay in Nilaveli, Sri Lanka.
