Jungle Beach, Unawatuna

3.4
#1 of 38 in Things to do in Unawatuna
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.

    Beautiful beach that is not too crowded. Sea is fairly calm so that is good if you have some small children. There is a bit of a walk down to the beach but our kids managed no problem. You can buy food and drink at a restaurant there but be prepared to wait as the service wasn't good.

    Very nice and calm beach, but quite a lot of trash in the jungle and the water is not very clear. Small crowd and very relaxed setting though
