Out of the trees and into the sun, sea, and sand
For a temporary escape from our backland habitat, the world-famous Unawatuna Beach is a short drive away from Jetwing Kurulubedda, on the sunny coastline that is synonymous with Sri Lanka’s southern province. Previously boasting the title of the best beach in the world, Unawatuna remains impressive with its expansive stretch of white sand that meets the cerulean blue waters of the Indian Ocean.
Unawatuna Beach lies 20 minutes south of Jetwing Kurulubedda, snug in its sun-kissed bay filled with holidaygoers from around the world. The narrow coastal road that hugs the shoreline serves as a fascinating walk through seaside boutiques and restaurants that cater to the tastes of everyone who encounters them.
