One of the very few most clean, safe and more over beautiful beaches in the world. I couldn't find enough words to describe the wonderful experience you could get, only request is to experience it and add one tick to your bucket list. If you are a camping lover it would be a totally different experience all together. This is... More

calm and safe beach for swimmers and nonswimmers. lovely spot for snorkeling as you will see many beautiful fish and marine animals congragating near the rocky edges. We were lucky to be hosted by the Navy in a private part of the beach as there is a public area that can get a little crowded. Food served at the restaurent... More

Marble Beach is one of the main beaches in trincomalee. Other than to marble beach, there are Nilavali beach & Arisimale beach in Trincomalee. Even though Nilavali beach is the most famous beach in trincomalee, Marble beach also quite famous within the travelers.

The beach was not crowded when we visited but it can become so. The beach has beach front accommodation, an excellent restaurant and a separate bar . Unlike the beach at Trincomalee this is really a bay with bush down to the waters edge and is reasonably sheltered with good swimming and snorkeling.

I definitely don't agree with all the negative reviews about this beach on TA. Yes, it's not Thailans but I do think it's one of the best pieces of beach in Sri Lanka to spent a nice day. Most off all it is clean, quiet, peaceful, the water was very clear when we visited you could see the fish through... More
