At about 3pm there is a nature cycle trail through the wildlife of the east coast. It is a great way to spend an afternoon spotting wild birds and mammals and is a must once during your stay.

Lovely location

Felbridge, United Kingdom

We stayed at the Jungle Beach for 4 nights. The hotel is in a beautiful area with a prestine private beach. Our beach chalet had its own pathway directly to the beach with a sea view from the verandah and the front was facing the jungle. The staff are professional and friendly, and although the service is a bit slow, we were relaxed so it didn't cause any problems for us. We found that the food and drinks were expensive for that area but they have a captive audience since the hotel is based on it's own, miles from anywhere. It is however inexpensive to take a tuk-tuk of taxi into town which is about a 30 minute (max) drive.

Secluded and unique.

Carmel, Indiana

My family stayed 4 nights at Jungle Beach, as my daughter had her wedding here on the beach. It was a magical experience, simply beautiful. Excellent buffet dinner the Friday night before, special breakfast with traditional foods offered to the wedding family & guests. The staff worked very hard preparing for the ceremony on the beach and the festivities, outdoor area next to the beach where we partied into the night with a live band, beautiful lights, excellent food. My accommodation was one of the cluster cabins with it's own pool, which was so lovely and peaceful. My only criticism is that the breakfast service is painfully slow. However, the breakfast itself is lovely and the evening dinners are very good and well presented. Certainly you won't go hungry. Quite an expensive hotel, but not outrageous and we didn't think the drinks prices were particularly high. It's a good 25 - 30 minutes drive into Trincomalee.
