All You Need to Know About the Top 5 Beautiful Beaches in Unawatuna - One for the beach bums!

Are you considering a trip to a destination with turquoise-coloured waters and golden sandy beaches? Then the popular beaches of Unawatuna, Sri Lanka, are the place for you. Let's take a quick look at the famous ones you cannot miss out on!


The Unawatuna Bay Beach

Unawatuna's main beach is the most famous one with visitors and locals. You will have a chance to participate in a variety of water sports at the beach. You can even rent sunbeds on this beach and spend your day relaxing under the sun while admiring the beautiful ocean views. Taking a walk down the beach's west side to the well-known Japanese Peace Pagoda monument, which overlooks the breathtaking ocean is much recommended. Make sure to book Unawatuna hotels with beachfront views. For instance, you can check out properties belonging to popular chains like Araliya Beach Resort & Spa.


The Wijaya Beach

Without a doubt, this is among Sri Lanka's most photographed beaches. If you would like to take Instagram worthy beach pictures, make sure to visit this beach. If you're feeling particularly daring, swing around and leap into the water. This beach is known as 'beach swing' due to the long rope that is dangling from a tall coconut tree. This is an experience that should be on your list of things to do in Unawatuna.


The Dalawella Beach

A quaint village called Dalawella is about 2 kilometres ahead of this beach town, and it provides the perfect escape from the hustles of Unawatuna's beaches. This is also one of Unawatuna's quieter and more secluded beaches, ideal for families or for just enjoying some solo time surrounded by beautiful nature. This beach will captivate you with its untouched coastal scenery and natural saltwater swimming pools. It gives you a place where you can relax and enjoy a peaceful swim while admiring some astounding ocean views.


The Jungle Beach

Unawatuna's Jungle Beach is located on the opposite side of the Unawatuna main beach. Jungle Beach is the beach you need to go to if you want a beach that is a little more secluded and calm than some of the other beaches located in Unawatuna. The Jungle beach is not as accessible as the main Unawatuna beach, but it is definitely one that you can enjoy to the utmost during your vacation here. The beach resorts here have excellent views, services, and local food, satisfying all of your holiday needs. If you don't want to walk to this beach, you can use a ferry to get there. Snorkelling, horseback riding, and admiring beautiful colonial bungalows designed by the Dutch merchants who stayed in Galle are among the fun things you can partake in when you're here.


The Mihiripenna Beach

The scenic Mihiripenna beach has become one of Unawatuna's most well-known beaches. This cove, like Jungle Beach, is a little secluded and near the ocean's edge. You should relax on the beach and watch the sunrise or even the sunset without having to think of it. The beautiful ocean views and the lush green sceneries will keep one energised and active.
