  Dagoba outshining Unawatuna
by schmechi

Unawatuna is a beach resort located in the south-west of Sri Lanka. Probably it is not the most beautiful beach resort of the island but it has some great advantages: It is pretty near to Colombo and so it can be used for day trips and it is a cheap ressort, especially because the first travellers, who visited this area were backpackers.
There is also a dagoba in Unawatuna which tops the impression of this beach ressort off and makes it to a very lovely place to relax.
During the rainy season there will be dangerous currents, so don't swim too far outside.

Directions: Just follow the Galle road southwards

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
