"One of the worlds best beaches?" Unawatuna by kentishgirl

Unawatuna Travel Guide: 69 reviews and 148 photos

Yes, that is right. Unawatuna has been voted one of the worlds best beaches and in my opinion for good reason.
We visited Unawatuna and thought we would stay for mayben 4 days, 9 days later we left for Hikkaduwa further around the coast!

Unawatuna is one stunning stretch of sand, the waters here are a delight to swim in, very warm and shallow, the waves were calm and the waters lapped up to the foot of the restauarants.

It is a small village, offering a few small shops selling the basics. But there are some awesome restaurants and the beautiful beach - I realised when uploading this page that I really do not have many tips, but then when I reminiced my time here I remembered that we sat on the beach or in a cafe reading and chilling out for most of the time!
