Little bit to much tourists. Wouldn't go there anymore. Tiny beach. A lot of people and to many boats.

What to write about this “beautiful” place. Full of garbage and people. It is truly a jungle beach, but i do not have the urge to pay a second visit to this place. There are much nicer beaches in south coast of SL

You can walk there or take a TukTuk. A lot of local people are using this beach, and that says it all.

There are a couple of cafés that do the job. Cold drinks and ice creams are plentiful. Toilets in the cafés.

Pretty much as Google says, I think. We went via Tuk from the road to Galle which climbs over the hill and drops down towards the beach. I was told that you can go round the corner via the pagoda, but it takes quite a while.
