Around and About

Located on the outskirts of Galle, Unawatuna is an idyllic coastal village enjoying a lackadaisical pace. The soft lapping of the ocean and uncrowded beaches dotted with green palms set the rhythm for the go-slow Eden. Nestled close to the city centre, the main beach of Unawatuna basks in a vivacious mood whilst the tranquil Jungle Beach is hidden off the city. The seas of Unawatuna are ideal for water sports such as diving, snorkeling and surfing. Nearby attractions include the Galle, Koggala, Talpe and Ahangama beaches.

As you lay languorous on a sunbed enjoying the tropical colour palette, hues of gold and blue mesmerize you. ‘The Frangipani Tree’, for daydreaming in tropical style.
