Located in the city of Galle, in the south-western tip of Sri Lanka, Unawatuna is a small, clean beach witht urquoise waters that are ideal for swimming.Activities like scuba diving and surfing are unfortunately not available due to the small waves, but you can go on turtle-spotting trips instead.
Jungle Beach—located right next to Unawatuna—is perfect for those who love snorkelling. You can also spend time spotting marine life or simply lay back and gorge on the delicious seafood at the restaurants there. For those who’d prefer to watch the stars at night lying on the sand, you can stay at the numerous resorts in the area.
This crescent-shaped beach at the southern tip of Sri Lanka is the perfect representation of a tropical paradise. It offers its visitors a calm and quiet atmosphere for complete relaxation.
