Unawatuna Beach, Unawatuna

3.1
Nestled in a secluded cove and protected by a coral reef, Unawatuna Beach resembles a huge saltwater wave pool. The combination of golden sand and laidback atmosphere appeals to visitors from distant corners of the world, who come here to rent a beach shack, grab a cocktail, and watch the waves roll by--and swim and snorkel, of course. Visitors can also rent kayaks and jet skies, or go on a guided fishing trip. Amenities include a number of bars, restaurants, and shops.

  • The beach is perfect ... Hotels and restaurants all the way, but not too pushy. Sea turtles come up on the beach to lay their eggs, in the midst of us.

The coastline has many restaranv, where you can eat well. You can visit a pagoda, mingle with the locals, Feel all the flair. The narrow streets there are shops selling local products. If you're in Sri Lanka for the first time and don't know what to buy, try Lankan shampoos, toothpastes, which allow you to cope with periodontitis. and whiten teeth. Pay special attention to the acquisition of tea and spices-here they really are gorgeous. All scents are collected in Shrilanki tea Massalha.
