When in Sri Lanka be sure to pay a visit to Unawatuna which is in the southern part of Sri Lanka, 6 km from Galle. Known for its beautiful beaches, hip cafes, trendy restaurants and plenty of sightseeing make Unawatuna an attraction for tourists as well as the locals who are looking for a weekend getaway.
There are many different places which you may choose to stay at while at Unawatuna and there is something available for every budget. However, the main attraction of the place is the famous banana-shaped, golden beach. You can relax, unwind or have a relaxing time at the beach or take a dip in the cold water.
The vibe of the place is quite similar to being in Thailand or Cambodia, and if you are fond of a happening nightlife, Unawatuna is the place to be. During the day you can have a chill time at the beach or indulge in some guilty pleasure by going on a shopping spree or pampering yourself in the delicious food of Sri Lanka. Make sure to visit the turquoise waters of the hidden Jungle Beach for a beautiful sunset.
Unfortunately, the place has been rebuilt quickly after being affected by the devastating Tsunami in the year 2004, which might be a negative for some of the visitors. However, barring the negative side, there is still a lot to do and explore and make some beautiful memories at Unawatuna.
