Jungle Beach, Galle Reviews
There WAS a bar. It's gone now (2018 Jan 1) if you need a refreshment or a drink, bring your own. Plenty of shade if you wanna just lay down and chill. Gets very crowded in the weekends and holidays. The beach is okay. There are some corals with tiny little fishes. Bring along a snorkeling kit; you won't regret it. There's a little walk down to the beach. You'd need a pair of slippers.
The best beach in Sri Lanka. It is small beach, but there you can meet a lot of Srilankan people. They are playing on drums, singing and dancing together. I found there beautiful landscape - very clear, blue and calm ocean, a lot of rocks near the beach, nice gold sand, thousands palm trees and other trees and bushes, a huge cliff in the background... I could write more things... this beach is hide from tourists who love spend all free time in restaurant/pub. It is more wild and mystery. I love this beach!
Beautiful little beach. Very clean. Be aware that there are two jungle beaches: the one at the Japanese temple, and the other smaller one. We preferred the smaller one as it is more cosy. Food 🍲 at the shack is good value for money. They also serve beer 🍻. You can also snorkel here. The visibility is, depending on where you are, between 1 and 6 meters. Unfortunately, most corrals are dead, but there is still quite a bit of sea life in the area.
Lots of tourists. The beach, however, is not that impressive. Some insects on the shore due to the vegetation. There is a bar where you can order drinks like cocktails, coffee. Water and ice cubes are also available. Note that you can also buy drinks from upstairs a little cheaper. From the closest parking lot until the beach there is a 5 minutes road which is nice to take. The water is calm but there are some rocks so be careful when entering.
This beach is good in general but it kind of a long walk to get there. When you are there you question yourself what this place makes special? Nothing! Lots of garbage lying around! Nobody cares about the environment, very sad! If you go to the eastern entrance than there are more locals. The western part is more the touristic part with also a restaurant available.
