The Nanthikadal Lagoon
In English, Nanthi Kadal literally translates to the sea of conches. Many small rivers (the most famous being Per Aru) feed this lagoon, which is also called the Mullaitivu lagoon. The lagoon’s maximum length is fourteen kilometers and the maximum width is five kilometers.
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.
