Facilitate Agents:

Unawatuna Beach is still a very quiet place and a perfect location to enjoy the tropical beauty in relative recluse. Popular tourist destination is an also a breeding ground for turtles. It's Ideal for snorkeling Unawatuna doesn't offer the same opportunities for surfing or diving as other parts of the coast but the waves are good for swimming and the sands are clean and white.

There are some coral reefs to be explored at nearby Rumassala and now becoming popular as a bird watching location.Legend says that Unwatuna was created from a piece of earth from Himalaya, which had fallen from Hanuman in the Ramayanaya epic.

Unawatuna offers a wide range of accommodation scattered around nearby village, but for more luxurious places are few minutes drive from the beach. The beach side bars and restaurants are in abundance.

Most of the year the temple in the background lies dormant, serving a more decorative function in Unawatuna. But for one week in July the village and especially the temple are filled with bright light along with mumbling and shrieking noise from a hundred loudspeakers.
