President Mahinda Rajapaksa opened the Air Force Resort 'Marble Beach' in Trincomalee built by the Sri Lanka Air Force on Sunday.
The Air Force Resort has 11 cabanas at the moment. The Resort is open for local and foreign tourists now.
Air Force Spokesman Group Captain Andrew Wijesuriya said the Air Force took initiatives to construct the cabanas for tourists to enjoy the beauty of the Sri Lankan beaches.
He said the SLAF discovered this hidden treasure at Trincomalee and developed a luxurious resort surrounded by green mountain peaks, in front of the spectacular view of the Marble Beach close to Kinniya.
The cabanas are constructed with SLAF resources and run by them.
SLAF personnel are employed there.
He added that there is an open area in the beach for the public and any person can enter the area. The SLAF also runs a separate restaurant.
