Unawatuna Beach, Unawatuna

(3.1/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Nestled in a secluded cove and protected by a coral reef, Unawatuna Beach resembles a huge saltwater wave pool. The combination of golden sand and laidback atmosphere appeals to visitors from distant corners of the world, who come here to rent a beach shack, grab a cocktail, and watch the waves roll by--and swim and snorkel, of course. Visitors can also rent kayaks and jet skies, or go on a guided fishing trip. Amenities include a number of bars, restaurants, and shops.
