A day at the Unawatuna beach
Unawatuna beach bay is an ideal place to sunbathe and take a cool dip in the ocean. You can spend an entire day at the Unawatuna beach and not get bored. There are plenty of restaurants and cafés around the beach and the turquoise hues of the sea will beckon you to enjoy the sun, sand and the tranquil atmosphere. If you are inclined so, you could join a beach party on the shore after dusk.
Visit the jungle beach
Jungle beach is a silky stretch of beach surrounded by a hill and plenty of greenery. It is located about a 30 minute walk or an 8 minute drive away from the Unawatuna beach. You can enjoy a short ascent down a hill to reach this secluded beach. The ideal time to visit jungle beach would be early morning before 10am when the area is fairy uncrowded. Take your snorkeling gear to catch a few glimpses of the world of sea creatures. A small shack built on the beach serves cold drinks and snacks. They also provide wooden beach beds.
Catch a sunset at the Dalawella beach
Dalawella beach is a long stretch of soft sand flanked by elegant palm trees. This beautiful corner of southern Sri Lanka combines the pulsating energy of the Unawatuna beach with the loveliness of the jungle beach. Visit the beach of an evening to catch a spectacular sunset from the shores and take one last dip in the ocean.
