One of the most popular beaches in Sri Lanka is Unawatuna beach. This place is a famous tourist attraction and it’s only one hour ride from the capital city, Colombo. In 2004, because of Tsunami this beach was destroyed and later on it was rebuilt.

There is a beach opposite to this called Jungle beach, which is more quiet but not easy to visit. If you have time, it’s worth the visit as it is a calm beach than the others in the area.

The most picturesque view of the beach can be witnessed during the sunset with all dazzling colors. Don’t waste your time, go and visit this beautiful beach in Sri Lanka.
