Jungle Beach, Unawatuna

3.4
Enjoy a swim at Jungle Beach, a secluded stretch of sand with gentle, calm waters. To access the beach, you need to drive or hike up to the Peace Pagoda, then climb down the steps through the jungle vegetation, meaning the beach remains less crowded than its nearby counterparts. Pick a sunbed near the beach bar, sunbathe, and have a refreshing drink, or drift further away to a quieter, more deserted part of the beach for some rest and relaxation. Arrange your visit to Jungle Beach and discover more family-friendly attractions in Unawatuna using our Unawatuna trip planner.

  • So many people, not a secret spot anymore. Actually more locals than tourists but still only go if you want to have 'fun'. The nearby Japanese Peace Pagoda is well worth exploring.  more »
  • Jungle beach was a wonderful experience. The short easy stroll down the mountain to the secluded beach. There are locals down on the beach where you can rent a day bed or get a cocktail or beer...  more »

  • This place is a very beautiful place which you can enjoy with your loved ones. The entrance is a jungle and you should go through it finally ending in the beach 🏖 Many people visit here because it’s such a marvelous place and it’s very natural. You would love it trust me.
  • One of a kind moments to have swimming experience. There are no sharks, but you have to find a safer spot. It's a great time to be there, especially in the morning.
