Worth a visit! Quieter than Unawatuna beach and filled with locals which made it feel very authentic and charming. The restaurant also serves delicious food!

Dont bother going. There are much better beaches. Its dirty, has no appeal and therefore a waste of time.

A pretty beach a 30 - 40 minute walk from the middle of Unawatuna. Some steep hills. I think it is possible to go some of the way in a tuk tuk but you have to walk the last bit. Jungle Beach is a small...More

Jungle beach should be renamed Junk beach. The beach is completely covered in rubbish and is a disgrace. Do not waste your time going down there.

We enjoyed a few hours here. It's definitely not as good as the reviews say as it's hard to get to and there isn't much beach. So check it out but it's definitely not a full day trip. Certainly don't go out of your way...More

This is very close to the Japanese Peace Pagoda. It is the best place to see the sea and the land outline as a great view. When you just passed 100m by walking it's the Jungle Beach. You can fish, enjoy a chilled beer while...More

Pretty much as Google says, I think. We went via Tuk from the road to Galle which climbs over the hill and drops down towards the beach. I was told that you can go round the corner via the pagoda, but it takes quite a while.
