Galle Villa Holiday Guide: Jungle Beach, Galle – Secrets Unveiled!
Jungle beach is a secluded beach along the southern coast of sunny Sri Lanka in the quaint village of Rumassala. Located approximately 7km from the city of Galle and closer to the famous touristic hub Unawatuna. Jungle beach was once a hidden gem, a secret hideout for beach bums and nomads that enjoy the tranquility. As time went by with word of mouth, facebook shares, snapchat clicks and Instagram likes the jungle beach is also progressing to become ‘popular’ but not so much as its counterparts Unawatuna, Galle, and Hikkaduwa beaches. The best way to make the most of your trip to the south coast is to stay villas in Sri Lanka that is located overlooking the beach.
How to get to Jungle Beach Unawatuna
There are two routes to enter the jungle beach. You need to make a ten-minute walk through a jungle path, which you can either go through the peace pagoda or a tiny paved road. If you take the road that leads through the Japanese peace pagoda you can stopover to explore the beautiful Buddhist stupa, which is a monument, built to inspire peace. The Japanese peace pagoda is focused on promoting peace to people of all communities irrespective of their race and creed to unite together. If you plan to visit the peace pagoda make sure to carry a clothing item that will cover your legs.
Jungle Beach is blessed with rich biodiversity
Jungle beach is not only about the beach; it’s also blessed with rich biodiversity that makes it extra special. One of the best things about jungle beach that makes it stand out from the rest is that it is just the right size for swimming. The waves are usually not strong so it basically feels like you are at a natural pool. When you enter the beach you get a lovely café where you find beach beds to get your tropical suntan. This is a place you can spend the whole day reading, snoozing, snacking, swimming or simply staring into the Indian Ocean.
