Jungle Beach, Unawatuna

3.4
Beach · Nature / Park
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. Arrange your visit to Jungle Beach and discover more family-friendly attractions in Unawatuna using our Unawatuna trip planner.

  • Nice beach, if a bit small. Better for swimming than the surfing beaches near town. Very popular and lots of people. There's a bit of walk down to the water.  more »

  • Beautiful and small beach, but it's crowded and polluted:(
  • Amazing hidden place, you have to walk down about 10-15 minutes between so many cute monkeys, they are harmless . There is a tinny beach bar and sea food restaurant with facilities. Very friendly local people.
