Very nice beach to visit, but mostly if you go by boat and can visit the coral reef and snorkel or dive there.

Supposedly a secluded beach, this has in fact turned into a hipster version of Una beach. Longish walk for nothing.

This is a lovely beach with a little restaurant - very organic with jungle behind. I went snorkeling, and there were a few lovely fish, but coral all dead which was a bit depressing. Nonetheless - worth a busy for a lunch a relaxation.

Even though staying just a couple minutes from Unawatuna Beach, we ended up at Jungle Beach every afternoon. The kids loved the small hike from the tuk tuk drop off spot. The beach itself is small and definitely not private, but with plenty of shade...More

Highly reccommended beach! Lots of locals around and safe, clear water! Very close to the shops, great to stay for a few hours and relax with a book to get away from the hotel.

Jungle beach was about 40 mins walk from our hotel, Thambapanni Resort, but worth walking to. The walk itself was really attractive, through native jungle. We could have got a TukTuk but preferred the peace of the walk. Because it is tucked out of the...More

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.
