Arisimale Beach, Trincomalee Reviews
Beautiful beach with amazing view. Nearly 40kms away from Trinco. You can actually see a beach with rice like sand.
Arisimale Beach lies off the beaten track about 50 kms North of Trincomalee in the town of Pulmude. In Tamil arisi means rice and malai means mountain. Thus this is the ‘Mountain of Rice’ in Tamil. The reason for name is in the sand. This beach is made of extremely large particles of sand, the size of a rice seed(The sand is not soft and smooth it's like rice.).
A beautiful beach with incredibly clear water so that you can see the bottom of the shallow water clearly. Even this beach has rounded sands. Arisimale means Rice Sand in Tamil and that's because of the sand in this beach look like rice. They give a different feel when you touch compared to sands in other beaches.

ally nice beach with good swimming spots, very clean with no litter, beach lounges to hire or lots of sandy spots to lay a towel, a few options for food and drink too. The nicest beach we visited in Sri Lanka
