The Unawatuna bay is the perfect place to soak up some sun and local culture. Nestled between Galle and Talpe, it has built up a reputation for having one of the best beaches in Galle. A “Bohemian-esque” culture has evolved and tourists can find good food and creative cocktails, safe swimming and snorkeling throughout the year. There is also some decent nightlife – who doesn’t want to party on the beach! Way back in 2004 Unawatuna was voted on of the best beaches in the world on Discovery Channel.
Other Unawatuna attractions in and around include Rumassala. A short (yet scenic!) walk inland from the beach leads to a patch of protected, tropical forest that is rich in unique biodiversity as well as mythology.
