Unawatuna Beach is just a 10 minute tuk tuk ride from Galle. This beautiful beach, which is just a small strip of restaurants and beach chairs (and beach beds!) is the perfect destination from Galle. After three wonderful days exploring the Old Fort of Galle we hoped in a tuk tuk with our backpacks and stayed near Unawaturna Beach for two days before heading further East. I loved the small village feel of the main street behind the beach with cafes, shops, crepe huts, and shisha lounges.
