You need to do a hike through Rumassala jungle to reach this beautiful beach but you will feel it’s worth it. The beach is very beautiful, untouched and serene and an ideal place to swim in calm water.
You might see a few nice fish and sea creatures there. Although there are showers, a small restaurant as well as toilets at the beach, there are no changing rooms. You will really enjoy a day out at Jungle Beach. Such a peaceful and quiet little beach, which offers not only great swimming, is a nice break from the crowded and merry Unawatuna Beach.
You can relax on a beach chair if you get there earlier. People mostly don’t want to rest on beach chairs as most go there to snorkel or and enjoy a nice swim.
You have several options to get there. You can hire a cab or go to Colombo Fort train station and take a train to Unawatuna which will take at least 4 hours. Another option is taking a bus from Colombo or go via Colombo-Matara highway. From Galle, you can hire a tuk tuk to Unawatuna.
