Unawatuna, Galle
With the irresistible magnetism of sun, sea and sand, Unawatuna Beach is Sri Lanka's most famous beach. The beach was formerly renowned worldwide for its beauty, but post the tsunami disaster in 2004, the restructuring of Unawatuna was carried out in a haphazard manner. Its popularity for after-dark action however, remains undiminished.Things to do: Diving and snorkelling; Visit Ancient Galle Fort; Seek blessings at the Temple Yatagala Raja Maha Viharaya; Relax at the Thaproban Beach House and eat some authentic Sri Lankan cuisine.

About Unawatuna

Day 2 -So, this is my Scuba day. I called the dive master, he told me that I could get there around 11 and with some money to take underwater photos, I took the beginners' Discovery dive. For few minutes, he taught me the rules of underwater diving and gave me some tips if anything goes wrong. After all that, I had put on this tight suit and heavy gear. It is hard to walk with all that. Then we went in for 3 km in and then my heart started to beat. This is for real. I have to swim underwater now. And that too, I have to fall in the ocean on my back. It was one crazy experience, and I would do it anywhere now. (Well No, if there were any Sharks). We saw some rare fishes, Coral, and sunken ships (during the war) and as my Oxygen gas was emptying, I pulled it back up. That was one of the first craziest thing I did.
