Unawatuna Beach was named the world’s best beach by The Discovery Channel in 2004. That may be a stretch today, but Unawatuna is undoubtedly the best beach in Sri Lanka-none other offers the same combination of golden sand, a protected bay that offers the country’s best swimming, the famed beauty of the headland with its temple and sunset, and the laid back atmosphere of Unawatuna. Accessibility is also unrivalled, only an hour and a half from Colombo.
Facilities and Activities: Facilities include Unawatuna’s only swimming pool, a ‘Footrub’ brand wellness centre, a Padi diving club( according to the weather conditions) , beach volleyball court, table tennis, aqua gym & yoga classes, and a meeting room with a seating capacity of 50. New for the year 2013 will be an extended gym, dedicated yoga pavilion, and games room/kids centre.
You can enjoy the sound of the ocean and get a great view of the Unawatuna Bay from the Rendezvous Restaurant located right on the beach. You can spend many hours in this colourful, well furnished restaurant and be pampered by a unique, friendly service by a smiling staff. The chefs will do their best to satisfy your taste buds and get you craving for more with a delectable array of sea food, western cuisine, choice steaks or the famous southern rice & curry.
The Barmen at the CoCo Rumba Bar will be at your service and provide you with exciting drinks and a personal service. Action pizzas, hot sandwiches and snacks complimented with an array of Sri Lankan teas and quality international coffees are offered at the coffee shop and open deck adjoining the beach.
