Trincomalee (Gokanna) is a port town and capital of Trincomalee District (Sri Lanka's Eastern Province) with total area approx 8 km2 (3 mi2) and population around 100,000.

Trincomalee is among the country's main centers of the Tamil-speaking culture. The city was built on a peninsula, dividing its inner and outer harbours.

Trincomalee is home to the popular Koneswaram temple and other historical monuments like Bhadrakali Amman Temple, Trincomalee Hindu College and Trincomalee Hindu Cultural Hall. The city is also the site of Trincomalee railway station and an ancient ferry service to the harbor's south side at Muttur and to Jaffna.

The European superpowers competed for Trincomalee Harbour, ruled over the centuries by the Portuguese, Dutch, French, and British.

Trincomalee Port (locode LKTRR) is ranked the world's 5th-largest natural harbor and is overlooked by highlands. The harbor entrance is guarded by two headlands. A road runs along its eastern and northern edges. There are plans for developing Trincomalee into a commercial seaport.

In 2015, Sri Lanka and India agreed to develop South Asia's largest oil depot at a seaport close to Trincomalee. Indian Oil Corporation and Ceylon Petroleum Corporation worked together to develop Upper Tank Farm at China Bay.

On June 5, 2023, Cordelia Cruises (travel brand owned by Waterways Leisure Tourism Pvt Ltd/Essel Group) launched the regular India-Sri Lanka route Chennai-Hambantota-Trincomalee with the ship Cordelia Empress/fka Empress of the Seas. The itinerary (roundtrip from Chennai) is operated during summer (June thru September)

Trincomalee is sacred to both Tamils and Hindus. It has numerous temples of historical importance, including Koneswaram, Bhadrakali, Sri Muthumariamman. The city also has some of Sri Lanka's most scenic beaches (relatively clean and unspoiled) popular for swimming and sunbathing. Whale watching is another common activity in the area. There are the 7 hot springs of Kanniya on the road to the city of Trincomalee. A wall bounds the rectangular enclosure that includes all 7 springs. Each of them is in turn enclosed via a dwarf wall in order to form a well. The temperature of each spring is slightly different, but the water is warm and relaxing.
