Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Marble Beach surf was calm and relaxing, just perfect for a long and leisurely dip in the sea! I encountered many aqua-colored luminescent jelly fish floating in the water, but not the painful stinging kind so no worries. They were sooo beautiful. There were large cabanas and trees on the beach for shade and for stashing gear. If you come by motorbike or tuk tuk, don't leave anything unsecured with your vehicle because you will probably lose it to a monkey. The morning was especially nice as there were just a few people swimming. By mid afternoon, throngs of wild (but good natured) teenage boys descended onto the beach. This is a public space with lifeguards who will blow their whistle if they deem you too far from shore. Bummer because the sea is very shallow for a long, long way. I was there in March and at that time approximately 65% of the beach was cordoned off by the police/military. Reason unknown, but the restricted area consisted of a long crescent of premium beach including the coral reef. At that time it was not possible to go snorkeling. The photo that accompanies this listing shows the whole beach, including what is now restricted. If your prime objective is a safe ocean swim, Marble Beach is a solid choice, just come early in the day.

This was such a disappointment. The place is run by the navy and half of it is closed off. Don’t waste your time nicer beaches around

Mediocre beach at best. Not sure whether whoever named this beach knows the actual colour of marble. The shops and general infrastructure at the beach are way past their glory days. Also this beach seems to be a side hustle of the local military. Dunno how I feel about that tbo. There are certainly nicer and more secluded beaches nearby that you should consider instead.

One of the most beautiful and swimmable beaches on the east coast. It's a very good place for a day trip from where ever you are staying in Tricomalee.

This beach is currently maintained by Sri Lankan Navy. Beach is clean and beautiful, but the Navy has restricted accessing two ends of it. The public can access only ~ 100 m to the left and right from the access point. I hope the rest will also be accessible for the general public to see its true beauty of it.

The bays in Trincomalee are some of the nicest calm swimming experience one will ever have. Marble Bay has some Cabanas that you can rent. It is maintained by the military, so getting a room is not through your usual tourist avenues. The rooms are very basic, but comfortable. But the beach makes it worth the effort. We went there during the season which is April through August. We did not travel Sept 2019 but July 2018.
