Unawatuna

An idyllic coastal escape tucked away along Sri Lanka’s sundrenched south coast, Unawatuna is set against a picture postcard backdrop of golden sands, tropical greenery and an endless aquamarine ocean. Only a 25 – 30 minute drive from Sri Sharavi Beach Villas & Spa, the ideal base from which to set off on Sri Lanka excursions, Unawatuna is famed for its crescent shaped shoreline and resplendent bay, with November through April being the best time to visit this corner of paradise.

Surf the waves in freedom, watch as turtles plod their way to shore and snorkel in clear azure waters that harbour some of the most vibrant coral reefs and colourful fish. This charming coastal locale is home to a mangrove sanctuary and is also a bird watching hotspot, playing host to an array of endemic birdlife that can be found in the marshy areas.

The many restaurants and bars that lie along the coast provide the ideal setting to enjoy a meal and some drinks while watching the sunset in all its grandeur. As the day bids a sweet farewell, Unawatuna becomes the perfect getaway to enjoy carefree nightlife.
