The tropical island of Sri Lanka, off the Southern Coast of India, is a gem that is saturated with natural splendour and historical heritage. There’s one place on the island in particular that is rich in both natural wonder and historical myth in equal measure, and that is the renowned coastal town of Unawatuna. Currently, Unawatuna is one the most sought after holiday destinations due to her stunning scenery and the presence of luxury hotels such as CoCo Bay Unawatuna. The fact that her waters contain everything from rich corals to sunken wrecks also means that diving is one of the top things to do in Unawatuna.
The mythical epic known as the Ramayana describes a beach paradise, and his fairly detailed descriptions have been interpreted by many as being descriptive of Unawatuna. The beaches off Unawatuna have also been reviewed by various travel-mediums as being one of the best in the entire world.
As incredible as the beaches are, the sights to be seen within the waters around these said beaches is what is truly incredible. This is why there is no shortage of diving institutions around the waters of Unawatuna. These diving schools provide all sorts of services, ranging from training courses associated with diving, such as the chance to earn a PADI certificate, or demanding excursions for experienced divers.
These excursions can include night-time dives, or even voyages to visit the many ship-wrecks that are beneath the waters surrounding Unawatuna.
There is even a myriad of marine life to be seen within the waters of this famed coastal town, the most noteworthy of which, are the highly endangered turtle-species that treat this area like home.
If you ever find yourself in Unawatuna, don’t miss out on this valuable opportunity to explore her waters. Caleb Falcon is a travel writer who specializes in writing content based on the many exciting world adventures that await intrepid travellers.
