Located between Galle and Unawatuna, the jungle beach is a petite beach that can even be reached on foot. The beach is very easily accessible and is clearly visible from the Japanese Peace Pagoda in Galle. Jungle Beach is perfect for snorkeling and is very popular for the same.

Jungle Beach Reviews & Ratings
Starts with greenery and passage made by arches of trees, then you walk on stones and corals deposited by the sea waves. And after a narrow grass passage you reach to the beach.. You can collect corals, dive in the sea and boat ride is also available. Cool place to stay alone for sometime.
Very Beautiful and uncommon beach. Great tourist attraction. Restaurants and parking lots available nearby. Close to peace pagoda. Crowded during weekends. Must visit place in galle
A small isolated beach close to Galle and Unawatuna, hard to reach especially with kids, so you need to be prepared to have up and down walk for 15 minutes on uneven road through the jungle, the beach it self is semi clean which is shame , there is beach bar who is provide good food with reasonable prices , the beach is crowded, it is however far less crowded than main Unawatuna Beach , if you walk further it's better with less crowd.
Good place to visit and is a nice view of the beach, i saw garbage everywhere in the beach, the public should be more responsible to protect the places like this Sri Lanka
Beautiful view 😍 must visit place in down south.
