Galle

Description

One of the best beaches in the south of Sri Lanka - just a few kilometres east of Galle. Great swimming and entertainment.

West coast of Sri Lanka, a popular tourist destination is a also a breeding ground for turtles. Legend say that Unwatuna was created from a piece of earth from Himalaya, that had fallen from Hanuman in the Ramayanaya epic.

Unlike the other resorts to the north Unawatuna is still a very quite place and a excellent location to enjoy the tropical beauty in relative recluse. Ideal for snorkelling and swimming. There are some coral reefs to be explored at near by Rumassala and now becoming popular as a bird watching location.

Unawatuna offers a wide range of accommodation scattered around near by village, but for more luxurious places are few minutes drive from the beach. The beach side bars and restaurants are in abundance.
