Jungle Beach, Unawatuna

3.4
Enjoy a swim at Jungle Beach, a secluded stretch of sand with gentle, calm waters. To access the beach, you need to drive or hike up to the Peace Pagoda, then climb down the steps through the jungle vegetation, meaning the beach remains less crowded than its nearby counterparts. Pick a sunbed near the beach bar, sunbathe, and have a refreshing drink, or drift further away to a quieter, more deserted part of the beach for some rest and relaxation.

  • Such a shame. Went to check it out and the beach had spots just full of plastic and glass bottles. Also warned by the some tourists who had just been that some locals were wasted and harassing tourist...  more »
  • Better beaches with less effort It’s quiet but there are no services on beach so I would say you are better going east towards thalpe where the beaches off the road are amazing .  more »
  • I am sure this beach would have been the best beach in the whole Srilanks....But it is not now. A small trek downhill and you will reach the Jungle Beach. As you would imagine...you will be in a dense...  more »

  • Nice beach with it's clear water. good crowd in summer and winter.
  • Great scenery, shallows for snorkelling and swimming. No corals near the shore. Glass-bottomed boat trips don't worth the price, and there is almost nothing to see in those trips. Take your own snorkel rather than hiring them locally. Good food from Jungle Beach Inn and polite vendor, but enormously late in service. No water offered unless asked for. And then, the water is separately billed.
  • Great place to bath in sea without huge waves. There are two places to bath and upper one is better. You can park your vehicles in the near houses and it will cost rs. 100. You can get bath from normal water in the same place and it will cost rs. 40 per person.
  • It's a place where you can have fun with friends...
  • Being a Sunday it was crowded. Many foreign tourists were there, enjoying the sunny afternoon.Will be a nice hangout place for an nice evening.
