I walked from Unawatuna to Jungle beach, then up to the Pagoda. Nice place with great views of Galle. I took a tuk tuk back to Unawatuna

The title says it all. If you can get off your lounger and climb for 5 mins the sunset view is spectacular

You can go to the Jungle Beach from there Very nice temple to worship and observe sea far away. Ground is getting pretty hot during noon hours so you will have to run instead of walking since you have to take off your footwear around...More

Atop a hill along the busy road to Unawatuna, this is a lovely peaceful place which also affords excellent views across the laxgoon towards the Galle Fort. Well worth a visit.

Took a tuk tuk up there due to an insury but you could also walk it. I‘d recommend this place and plan a bit time in to just hang out there. Very relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.

Since, it is a Buddhist temple, it should be free and open year round.
