Create an itinerary including Jungle Beach
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.

  • Nice beach for a sea bath. You need to park the vehicle and move little bit . But it is worth the travel. It is getting crowded during the evening

  • One of the more secluded beaches in the southern coast, Jungle Beach is an idyllic stretch of golden sands that allow you to admire the grandeur of the Rumassala Hill on one side, and the stunning Indian Ocean on the other. Ideal after a trek to Rumassala Hill, make your way to Jungle Beach to shake off the humidity and heat. Wade and weave through a thick jungle before finding the enticing blue waters and warm golden sands. A refreshing swim before heading back to one of our Taru Villas properties in Galle Fort will be ideal for your beach holiday. Jungle Beach is located in proximity to the Japanese Peace Pagoda. The beach is 15 minutes away from our villas in Galle Fort - whether you’re staying at Seventy 7 at Leyn Baan, Lighthouse Street or Rampart Street. From the beach, it is possible to view the Galle Fort in the distance Snorkelling and diving are possible water activities to engage in here. There are top notch resorts and cabins at Jungle Beach furnished with plush amenities and offering you a tranquil retreat amidst the jungle settings. The resorts and cabins have private walkways which will lead you to the calm shoreline caressed by the lapping waves of the Indian Ocean. You can savour traditional Sri Lankan cuisine in a communal restaurant or enjoy private dining on a beachside restaurant. In a nutshell, Jungle Beach is the place which awaits you to explore its hidden treasure and spend your vacation in style and luxury.
  • My favorite beach in Sri Lanka so far. This is what you imagine when hearing about a tropical beach: cristal clean water, golden sand and palm trees all around. As the road there is not very accessable to everyone, the beach does not have all those fancy restaurants like in Mirissa. This is an awesome place to swim, snorkel, drink coconut and relax. )))
