Famed palm-tree rope swing puts Sri Lanka beach hotspot on the tourist bucket-list map!
There’s not many places in the world where a bucket-list must-visit is hanging from a tree—and the palm tree rope swing at Dalawella Beach in Sri Lanka is one of them.
Jackson at the Journey Era adventure travel blog writes that “there are plenty of places around the world that have become viral travel hotspots overnight. A few popular Instagrammers or vloggers blow a place up and all of a sudden it becomes a must-do activity while you visit a region.
“The palm tree rope swing at Dalawella Beach is a prime example of a social media hotspot. Having said that it’s an awesome spot for a fun afternoon or a sunset and chill place to hang out whether you intend on getting that ‘Instagrammable’ travel shot or not.
The guys built the swing as something fun for themselves and it is evolved into one of the most talked about spots in Sri Lanka.
The location of the swing is on Dalawella Beach, which is in the south of Sri Lanka near the popular town of Unawatuna. It takes about two hours to get to Dalawella Beach by train from Colombo and will cost a couple of bucks for the ticket.
Once you are at Dalawella Beach the exact location is actually in front of a guesthouse called Dream Cabana. The guys built the swing as something fun for themselves and it is evolved into one of the most talked about spots in Sri Lanka.
‘I’ve been to Sri Lanka before, so I had certain expectations but this adventure has blown them out of the water!’
Jackson is currently adventuring throughout South East Asia, from beaches to waterfalls and everything in between. “I am living it up but I also stick to a crazy budget trying to maintain a full-time travel lifestyle.”
Sri Lanka is everything he expected it to be, a cornucopia of experiences that included hiking to Diyaluma Falls, the second-highest waterfall in Sri Lanka and a totally chilling experience!
Another highlight was exploring Ella. “I’ve been to Sri Lanka before, so I had certain expectations but this adventure has blown them out of the water. We have been nonstop hitting awesome spots and staying at great hotels in between to refresh.”
