Relax at Jungle beach, Unawatuna Jungle beach was suggested to us by many of the locals as one of the best things to do in Unawatuna, so we decided to spend a morning hiking there to see what all the fuss was about. After a 30 minute walk through the jungle, we landed on the beach situated in the bay of Galle and overlooking Galle Fort. The first beach, which was packed full of locals enjoying their Sunday swim, was a little polluted for our liking, with plastic just about everywhere. However the second beach, just a short walk away was much nicer and far less busy. That said, as we were leaving it seemed to be the place for locals to come and spend the afternoon drinking and pumping music (and, a few told us later, occasionally get into fights) – which definitely isn’t really our scene for a beach day.While it’s not the best beach in Sri Lanka, it’s far quieter than Unawatuna main beach, and definitely worth half a day visit. If you’re hungry or thirsty, there’s a little beach hut selling fresh seafood and refreshments on the beach.THE DETAILSWhere | Jungle beach, UnawatunaHow to get to Jungle Beach | From Unawatuna main beach, fellow Yaddihemulla Rd, until the junction, then turn right onto Jungle Beach road and follow the signs all the way to the beach.
