Unawatuna is no doubt one of the best beach stretches in Sri Lanka. The beach has long since drawn the attention of travelers far and wide, who come here to enjoy the soothing waters and absorb the tropical sun along clean and powdery beaches.
The Jungle Beach is a tiny bay area that is well hidden from the usual hubbub of the city. Visiting this little-isolated haven is definitely among the best things to do in Unawatuna. The entrance to the beach is through a rather narrow and steep path that will take you to a sign with the name of the beach on it, which is painted on a rock. The entrance to the beach itself can be a bit crowded as there are several sun loungers as well as eateries that serve out quick bites and chilled drinks to the beach-goers. However, this is any case is much less crowded than the actual main line of beach stretch in Unawatuna.
If you want a bit of seclusion all you have to do is to keep walking away from the sun beds and you will see that the bay region is almost devoid of any noise or vendors as well as a lot of people. The Peace Pagoda can also be seen from the beach. The waters of the Jungle beach are famous for being devoid of any strong currents or waves and the relatively shallow nature of the sea, makes it the ideal place for people to enjoy a quiet swim and sunbathing session. It is also a safe spot for beginners to brush up their confidence when it comes to swimming in the sea. No visit to Unawatuna can be finished within a day, and if you are travelling here there, is a host of accommodation options available thanks to the tourism boom such as CoCo Bay Unawatuna and numerous others, that cater to a large range of requirements and budgets.
