A 30-min boat ride will take you to an Island of magical proportions surrounded by pure white sand, sea shells and a large rock on which pigeons roost. The beaches resemble a bit of heaven while it offers ideal conditions for snorkelers. It’s not the journey of travelling to Pigeon Island that is hard, but leaving this delightful location that is often a contemplated decision.
WHAT YOU WILL SEE
Pigeon Island National Park is a coral reef that harbors many vertebrates and invertebrates. The park supports over 100 species of coral and 300 coral reef fishes recorded around the Trincomalee area. The location is also great to observe the juvenile and adult Black tip reef shark as well as a variety of turtles such as the Hawksbill turtle, Green turtle and Olive Ridley. The island is also an important breeding ground for the Rock Pigeon.
The starting time will depend on the sea condition and will be communicated by our in-house naturalist.
