Jungle Beach, Unawatuna

(1,900+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Enjoy a swim at Jungle Beach, a secluded stretch of sand with gentle, calm waters. To access the beach, you need to drive or hike up to the Peace Pagoda, then climb down the steps through the jungle vegetation, meaning the beach remains less crowded than its nearby counterparts. Pick a sunbed near the beach bar, sunbathe, and have a refreshing drink, or drift further away to a quieter, more deserted part of the beach for some rest and relaxation. Plan to visit Jungle Beach during your Galle vacation using our convenient Galle family vacation planner.

  • Great beach. Beautiful view. Clean and secluded. Bit tricky to get to and from. Would visit again. Can spend the day there relaxing easily.  more »
  • The supposedly beautiful Bay was littered by garbage in the water repeatedly washed fragments, plastic, paper, bottles. Murky water. What would be nice on this Bay please? Really gross...

  • Love the beach, there is shadow from the plants. Many monkeys hanging around ! You can reach by foot 20 min away from Unawatuna cross the jungle. Many tourists go on the small path. Amazing experience...  more »

  • Not very easy to get there especially with small children. You should be careful when swimming as there are big and sharp rocks under the water almost everywhere. But very nice place for watching sunset and restaurant is also very good and not expensive.
  • The water is very dirty. Packets, pieces of food and other things are all over the beach and water. And nobody even tries to clean it. Though the lagoon is quite calm. A lot of stones in the water, it's hard to walk in.
  • Beautiful beach with a lesser crowd. Amazing sunset
  • Nice view and very calm beach. But still have to be careful with weird people trying to socialize randomly and trying to hit on all passing tourists.
  • This is a superb place to all the foreigners and to the localists. I had an awesome experience over here with a group of friends.
