Sri Lanka being a small island has her pride of being surrounded by the mighty sea, the place of a number of wonderful attractions. Among those, Unawatuna beach takes a best place. There lies the golden sandy beach with its turquoise blue waters guarding it, for Unawatuna isn’t merely a blanket of sea waters and sand but also a heaven of coral reefs, shipwrecks and a range of fish and turtles.

Unawatuna is home to a number of species like endemic birds including, terns, egrets, herons, sandpipers and kingfishers, as well as rarer species such as the lesser whistling duck, the Asian palm swift, the white-breasted water hen, the Loten’s sunbird and the black bittern. The Japanese Peace Pagoda is a stunning appeal whereas the Yatagala Raja Maha Viharaya Buddhist Temple as well as the Turtle hatcheries are too wonderful destinations. Said to be an island it is proud to say that Sri Lanka has bore all these loving places for the world to witness.
