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

Unawatuna is another great place to be. The beach is serene and has the cleanest water that I have seen in my life. Don't even think about spending couple of hours so as to see the sunset. It is not possible to see the sunset on the western coast.What is life on the beach without a morning walk? Next morning I went for the morning walk and a cup of coffee. Not a single place was open despite the signs suggesting that the place opens at 7 am.
