Palm-fringed beaches with golden sand, turquoise water, and a colorful coral reef are enough to draw any beachgoer to Unawatuna, but there's plenty to do off the beach here as well.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Handunugoda Tea Estate and Spas & Wellness. Explore Unawatuna's surroundings by going to Mirissa (Dolphin & Whale Watching & Mirissa Beach). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Jungle Beach, contemplate the long history of Galle Fort, look for gifts at Shoba, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Dutch Reformed Church.
