Unawatuna Beach

Six decades ago, Sri Lanka's tourism industry was not so advanced. And when the air traffic was not there, tourists from other countries came to Sri Lanka only by Passenger ships. Many of those who had come had only been touring in limited locations in Sri Lanka. When considering that, Unawatuna Beach was the heart of Sri Lanka's tourist arrivals and the oldest tourist attraction.

Unawatuna Beach is also the oldest tourist beach in the South. But today, it is a well-developed beach front that provides all the facilities for tourists.  But there are not so many hotels, tourist information centers, outdoor clubs there.

Due to the cleanliness of Unawatuna beach, it is possible for the foreign tourists to get a fascinating experience in the sea, without any fear. Also, tourists coming to this area can see the 'Ritipanna' (Fishing by sitting on wooden stand) a traditional fishery system passing down from the ancestors. The historic Wellle Devalaya is near the bay of the sea, where the waves roll on Devalaya ground and return to the sea. Tourists adore watching this scene.

There is a  abundance of sea food such as crabs, prawns, lobsters, and oysters flavored with many herbal products around Unawatuna beach. Koggala Beach near Koggala, Koggala Martin Wickramasinghe folk Museum are not far away from Unawatuna beach. You can get a fascinating boat ride in the lake around Madoldoowa , a small island  close to the Museum.
