Unawatuna

Unawatuna is located on the south coast of Sri Lanka about 4 hours from the international airport in Colombo. Our Guesthouse, the Black Beauty Guesthouse, is surrounded by a tropical garden, only 100 m away from the beach. Walking through our garden is a discovery with many birds, wild monkeys, mongooses, coconut-, mango-, papaya-, banana- and spicetrees around.

The beach is about 2 km long. Our coast is protected by a wonderful coral reef where snorkeling is marvelous. We request our guests not to destroy the reef and to protect this beautiful biotope. You can also swim in the ocean behind the coral reef if you like. It is harmless. Through a path in the middle of the bay, which is used by the local fishing boots, waves reach the beach providing good conditions for body surfers. Unawatuna is a beautiful beach resort for the whole family, where you can dive, swim, snorkel and do deep-sea fishing. Several temples overlooking the bay and the ocean ask for your visit – breathtaking sunsets included.

Restaurants, shops and entertaining in the evening: There are several restaurants at the beach. They offer local food (rice and curry), fresh fish, soups, vegetable fried rice and so on. There are many shops nearby where you can buy typical Sri Lankan products (gems, jewelry, spices, batiks, brass and wood carvings). Your provisions can be bought in local small shops. Also at night you can enjoy yourself. Whether you relax under the firmament or you like to dance, both is possible. On several days of the week you can go to a Disco on the beach. If you need to go online there are some internetshops in Unawatuna.
