Overview
Foul Point. The Chapel Hill lighthouse lies on the North of the Trincomalee Harbour. This lighthouse is currently operated by the Sri Lanka Ports Authority. Its focal plane is 111 m (364 ft) with white flash every 10 seconds.

The Bay of Trincomalee’s harbour is renowned for its large size and security; unlike every other in the Indian Sea, it is accessible to all types of craft in all weathers. The beaches are used for surfing, scuba diving, fishing and whale watching. The city also has the largest Dutch fort in Sri Lanka. It is home to major Sri Lankan naval bases and a Sri Lankan Air Force base.

The bay (or rather bays) is what Trinco is most famous for. There are three main bays – Back Bay to the north of Fort Frederick, Dutch Bay to the east of the town, and the Inner Harbour to the west. Trinco is on a peninsula so the town is surrounded by water. The Inner Harbour is the main deep-water port, but all three are used for fishing and sailing.
