A much smaller beach than Unawatuna Beach. Plenty of space to spread out. Beach Chairs available to rent at 500 Rupees. A couple of good beach bars serving food, beer and juice.

Pros - Amazing water, great for swimming. Got a chance to swim with two large turtles which was one of my favourite moments in Sri Lanka. Right next a pizza place which is a good lunch option. Safe swimming area for children. Snorkles and masks...More

Can't really review the beach itself, but I stopped by here quickly for the Rope Swing ... it's obviously a pretty cool thing, but the guys operating it were dodgy. They said it'd be 300 rupees for a go; I only had 1000 note, so...More

A little too quiet for my liking of a beach resort. There's no shops or restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast is pricey at USD10 per pax. We decided to go into Galle town for breakfast instead. Rooms were basic and clean. Mattress and pillows not...More
