Unawatuna Beach in Southern Sri Lanka, known for it's biodiversity and corals, was once listed among the top ten best beaches in the world; until the recent Tsunami in 2004 destroyed much of the corals and beach side restaurants.

After galle fort we went to jungle beach on the way to mirissa. It like you have to trek through jungle for about 1-2 km. to reach the beach. This is a nice beach.

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.
