Unawatuna

3.9
Palm-fringed beaches with golden sand, turquoise water, and a colorful coral reef are enough to draw any beachgoer to Unawatuna, but there's plenty to do off the beach here as well. With roughly an hour ride from the capital city Colombo, the resort's superb location is quite popular with travelers. The small town is packed with guesthouses, trendy restaurants, and great shops selling souvenirs, clothes, and jewelry. The narrow, bustling streets of the 17th-century fort offer a mixture of historical charm, colonial relics, and chic boutiques, cafes, and hotels. For encompassing views of the beach and the town, climb the small hill at the west end of the beach topped with a pagoda. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Unawatuna and add them to your vacation plans using our Sri Lanka tour itinerary planner.
