Unawatuna Beach was named the world’s best beach by The Discovery Channel in 2004. That may be a stretch today, but Unawatuna is undoubtedly the best beach in Sri Lanka-none other offers the same combination of golden sand, a protected bay that offers the country’s best swimming, the famed beauty of the headland with its temple and sunset, and the laid back atmosphere of Unawatuna. Accessibility is also unrivalled, only an hour and a half from Colombo. It is simply the best all round beach in the country, and probably the world.: Most Sri Lankan beaches are too dangerous to swim. Unawatuna is a sheltered cove protected by a coral reef that provides a 2km by 1.6km bay with a maximum depth of only 6m (18 feet). It is a giant salt water ‘wave pool’. Unawatuna is a mere 3.7 miles away from Galle and 5 minutes from the new Southern Expressway, which has halved travel time to only one hour to to Colombo and 90 minutes to the airport.FacilitiesFacilities include Unawatuna’s only swimming pool, a ‘Foot rub’ brand wellness centre, a Padi diving club( according to the weather conditions) , beach volleyball court, table tennis, aqua gym & yoga classes, and a meeting room with a seating capacity of 50. New for the year 2013 will be an extended gym, dedicated yoga pavilion, and games room/kids centre.]Wine and DineBrix Pizzeria, Bakery and Café Brix is our light eating, café style concept.
