Just lovely! Fairly quiet, not too touristy, right in the middle of a jungle with real monkies;) You'll be able to get all refreshments and fruits. Mind you the path down to the beach is still a bit wild, true Sri Lankan experience!

A short walk through the jungle if you go by tuk-tuk. Otherwise a bit longer from the main road. There are two beaches with some rocks in between. You have to scramble over the rocks to go between them. There are quite some fish just...More

Nice place to relax. The beach strip isn't too long but it's long enough and not many people are aware of the place. There is a little bar with seats for a refreshment at normal pricing. If you don't mind taking the short hike down...More

Small Beach used by locals. Food available and Beer. Prices resonable. Water calm and warm. 500r from town with Tuc Tuc. Spent a nice afternoon there away from the hustle and bustle of City.

We walked from Unawatuna - takes about 30 minutes through a nice jungle track. Unfortunately the beach itself is strewn with rubbish - in the jungle, on the sand and in the water. Ruins an otherwise nice, calm spot to swim.

We heard this was an amazing beach but were sadly disappointed. Way overcrowded with gangs of teenage boys banging on their drums. Rubbish everywhere and the water looked brown. Beach hut way overpriced and staff extremely rude. Go to another beach and save yourself the...More

Lovely days spent in this hidden treasure! Perfect for young kids and snorkeling. Good way to spend the day and maybe go to the next beach on for the late afternoon surfing!

Can hike to this beach through a trail in the jungle in about 20-30 minutes from the beach near Unawatuna. Saw some monkeys swinging through the trees. Not totally secluded but still special.

The guys who managed to put up a beach hut acts as if he owns the beach. He make sure he exploits every opportunity to the maximum. The outrageous amounts he charges cannot be justified by the way he maintains the beach area. I know...More

Tiny strip of sand between a steep jungle covered slope and a dirty sea. Took a glass bottom boat and the bay, saw plenty of plastic bags and bottles float passed but only about three fish. Really wouldn't bother!

Pretty much as Google says, I think. We went via Tuk from the road to Galle which climbs over the hill and drops down towards the beach. I was told that you can go round the corner via the pagoda, but it takes quite a while.
