Unawatuna beach

Unawatuna Beach
Sri lanka, Unawatuna
Unawatuna is one of the beaches of a small resort of the same name, located on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, 6 km from the city of Galle, with its famous fish market. The beach is attractive with its clean golden sand and palm trees along the coastline. A significant part of Unawatuna Beach is protected from the open ocean by a double coral reef, so there are no big waves here. For lovers of the underwater world, there is a diving school, as an alternative, trips along the reef on a boat with a transparent bottom are offered.

There are no tourist complexes and luxury hotels in the resort, but there are enough small restaurants and cafes with a varied selection of dishes. They can rent sunbeds and umbrellas, which are free for visitors to the establishment. The beach is quite calm, with a gentle entry into the water, although, after a storm, coral fragments may interfere for some time. Not far from the beach there are several Buddhist temples and the Japanese Peace Pagoda, donated in 2004 to the local community as a sign of friendship and peace.

The ocean is relatively calm here. The water is pale blue, but completely opaque. In addition, entering the water is very uncomfortable due to the large number of coral fragments. The surf carries them back and forth and can hit the leg painfully. But, having overcome the surf, you can safely swim. The cove is small but cozy. There is a Buddhist temple at the northern end of the bay. If you climb higher, you can see Galle Fort from the rocks.
