Sober Island


Emerging from the water, a tiny island, a short distance away from the Trincomalee harbour, is the beautiful Sober Island. Sober Island is steeped in antiquity and has been a well-kept secret away from prying eyes for many decades.

Unavailable to the public throughout the war, the Government has made Sober Island a holiday retreat that the Navy very capably runs as part of its development drive.

The history of Sober Island is fascinating and dates far back in time. In 1775 a teenage Midshipman name Horatio Nelson arrived in Trincomalee aboard the HMS Sea Horse.
