UNAWATUNA - SRI LANKA

UNAWATUNA - SRI LANKA

Unawatuna is a coastal town in Galle district of Sri Lanka. Unawatuna is a major tourist attraction in Sri Lanka and famous for its beautiful beach and corals. It is a suburb of Galle city which is situated about 5 km southeast to the city center. Unawatuna is rich in its biodiversity. Over sixty species of endemic birds, including Terns, Egrets, Herons, Sandpipers, Kingfishers, as well as rarer species such as the Lesser Whistling Duck, the Asian Palm Swift, the White Breasted Water hen, the Turnstone Loten's Sunbird, and the Black Bittern have been sighted in the locality by the ornithologist, Clive Byers. These birds are mostly sighted in the remaining marshy area and Rumassala Hillock.

Off the coast of Unawatuna, beneath the Indian Ocean lies a number of coral reefs, shipwrecks, and a great variety of fish and turtles. The turtles still wade onto the shore to lay their nests and eggs, and at times, as if to lay first claim to the sandy shore now invaded by the tourists and dotted by restaurateurs, even go right into the beach front restaurants .

The Rumassala coral reefs at the east end of the Galle Harbor attract divers, but are now endangered due to possible port development. Eco treks in the shrub jungles of Rumassala are also available.

A legendary curved bay with reef protected shallow water on the far side that offers safe sea swimming. Unawatuna is primarily a resort for budget and independent travelers with a long line of guesthouses cramming the beach. The main Beach Road has become a sort of ‘mini Goa’ with restaurants and shops that open into the night, and even the odd nightclub too!

 With the opening of the new Southern express way, Unawatuna has become the place where party-people and expats from Colombo come for a fun weekend. Unawatuna has the best sea bathing beach in Sri Lanka. The beach at the far end near the ‘Wella Devale’’ Temple has shallow water throughout the year, even during the ‘off season’ from May to October. Kids can safely take in dip in the sea at this spot.
