Many visitors like to combine their stay on Unawatuna Beach with exciting round-trip tours to Kandy, Nuwara Elya, Ella, Haputale and the National Parks in Yalla and Udawalawe.
Of course, the list of interesting and highly scenic places in Sri Lanka is kind of endless and visitors can select from a long list that will also have to include Adams Peak as the second highest mountain, the Sigirya Rock and the Golden Temple near Dambulla, and some stunning hotels like the Kandaelama, the Taj Exotica and the Fortress in Koggala.
A visit to the Sea Turtle Hatchery in Koggala is a true highlight for those, who want to learn more about the amazing wildlife of the beautiful turtles, which are living in the coastal areas around Sri Lanka.
One of the best tours in Sri Lanka leads into the beautiful Kandy mountains, where the Lake, the Botanical garden and the famous Sri Dalada Maligawa temple are some of the biggest attractions besides a visit to the Kandy Dancers. Or even better, travel up to Kandy to see the biggest Perehara in Sri Lanka.
Tours to the high tea mountains of Haputale are one of the most impressive experiences that Sri Lanka is offering.
Close to Unawatuna is the city of Galle with it's amazing Fort, which was built by the Portuguese. But later on more the Fort was much more influenced by the Dutch around 500 years ago. Now it is a world heritage with some incredibly expensive properties.
