Nice little beach, not very busy and just one drinks vendor. Also if you're there at the right time of day the sunset is amazing.

There are 2 parts to the beach... visiting the smaller one is a must! If you look on the internet for images of the beach, they will not capture the beauty of it! The best view is paddled slightly out to sea and looking back...More

Perhaps this place is too well known and advertised, it's far from being a secluded romantic private beach. It's not worth a visit. The sea is not altogether clean, prices at the bar on one of the small beaches are inflated. if this is your...More

There are far better and cleaner beaches nearby(unawantuna), not advisable to go all the way.The beach is crowded and small.

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.
