Unawatuna is situated in the south west of Sri Lanka and is a popular destination with tourists, be it for family holidays or a romantic honeymoon. A drive down the coast to Unawatuna is an exciting holiday destination filled with myriad of attractions and many a greeting with the warm Sri Lankan smile.

Nights in Unawatuna come alive with music and the buzz in the bars while many a small restaurant along the beach offer entertainment and varied cuisine.
The Ramayana epic speaks of Unawatuna as a part of Himalaya which fell off the piece of Himalaya which Hanuman was carrying; this piece of Himalaya had held a species of herb that was to be used as medicine. A small forest region called Rumassala, survives to this day overlooking the golden beach.
