Jungle Beach, Unawatuna

3.4
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.

  • Can hike to this beach through a trail in the jungle in about 20-30 minutes from the beach near Unawatuna. Saw some monkeys swinging through the trees. Not totally secluded but still special.  more »
  • The guys who managed to put up a beach hut acts as if he owns the beach. He make sure he exploits every opportunity to the maximum. The outrageous amounts he charges cannot be justified by the way he ...  more »
  • Yes, the place is beautiful. Little pljazhik, separated from all streets and beaches. The water is clear, the sand is white, the jungle nearby. Don't get there so far. On tuk tuk you may come, and then walk down a hill to go down 20 minutes. The road is not smooth, stones and all the rest. Just visit the need, but not in the output for local day. Unfortunately, we visited this place on this day. There were a lot of people proosto unrealistic a lot. All sang, drank, danced, jumped, generally amused as they could. For such a small territory was really not comfortable is all! It seems to me that this is a place for peace and tranquility! So my advice is-boldly go there from Tuesday till Friday!)

  • its beautiful hidden beach. better if you go there on a weekday because of lesser crowd.
  • Beautiful beach that is not too crowded. Sea is fairly calm so that is good if you have some small children. There is a bit of a walk down to the beach but our kids managed no problem. You can buy food and drink at a restaurant there but be prepared to wait as the service wasn't good.
  • Absolutely stunning place. Not so crowded compared to another beaches near. U can get coconut and fruit drinks here too
  • Very nice and calm beach, but quite a lot of trash in the jungle and the water is not very clear. Small crowd and very relaxed setting though
  • Great place to enjoy had a great time
