I stayed at Sea View Hotel in Nilaveli. Small place in front of the Nilaveli main beach. Bit expensive when compare with the facilities, but very good place to see the sun raise.

Normally rooms at Nilaveli are expensive than in Trincomalee. Its due to name and also as they close to the sea. You can get good A/C room for 2500 from Trico as I heard.
