Unawatuna beach a magnet for party-going visitors to Sri Lanka

Unawatuna beach a magnet for party-going visitors to Sri Lanka

Unawatuna is all about the kilometer-long stretch of sandy beach that lines this sheltered bay just down the coast from Galle. And for beach, read ‘beach party’.

Voted ‘The World’s Best Tropical Beach’ by The Discovery Channel, and ‘Best Beach in the World’ by Mark Ellingham, founder of the Rough Guides, it is a magnet for the world’s young(er) holidaymakers.

Just 90 minutes down the highway from Sri Lanka’s international airport, Unawatuna is also a great destination for divers, windsurfers, adventurers and would-be explorers of our epic cultural heritage.

Starting with Galle Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site established by the colonial Portuguese, and later fortified by the Dutch and British, beachlovers can discover thousands of years of Sri Lankan history.

A two-week holidaymaker could spend every day finding out something new about what makes our paradise island, renowned as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, a great holiday destination.

But it’s the beach that makes Unawatuna tick, with its many and varied bars, restaurants and marine activity centres a magnet for winter-weary Europeans looking for sun, sea and excitement!
