One of the best places to visit in Galle. Like unawatuna there are no restaurants or hotels. There is one sea food restaurant but prices are bit high compared to outside the beach. This place is crowded in weekends and people come as groups ....More

A secluded beach in Unawatuna. Need to take a tuk tuk or a bike. The path to this is uneven. But the views from the beach is worth the walk. Try to visit early mornings to beat the heat

Jungle Beach, Unawatuna - We visited having read about it in the Lonely Planet guise. Bit of a trek to get to but well worth it! Not a large place but it wasn’t crowded either when my family visited in August. Cold soft drinks sold...More

Short walk down the hill path from Rumasalla Pagoda, shady beach, waves crashing on rocks and views of Galle town. Really enjoyed walking back from there to Unawatuna beach in the evening.

Jungle Beach is really a short walk from Unawatuna (about 40-60 min) through the jungle then climb down to the beach that is secluded and overlooks Galle. First came here over 3 years ago and it felt more exciting back then as it really was...More

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