However, you can also go on foot, now is the way, part of a trail, already marked. The walk to the Jungle Beach is beautiful, you should have seen once. Or you can take one of the boats in the bay, this is also a possibility, we do not know what it costs but. Of bile from the trail is easy to describe. About 500 Meters after the traffic lights, turn left in to the expressway to Colombo, turn right. Always follow the road until you reach the Peace Pagoda in front of the nose has. a narrow trail to the Jungle Beach.

The final piece will be quite steep downhill, then you get to the beach. From the turn in Galle to Jungle Beach is approximately. 3 Kilometers. Whether by tuk tuk or with your own scooter, The last few meters up the steep path must be covered on foot and it is worth, the beach is really nice.

The beds, these are very simple wooden chairs without cushions, to lie in the sand is convenient to all cases, but any how he wants. We were there in March and it was really crowded and Russian holidaymakers were clearly in the majority, now in August it is more pleasant because of the influx of visitors is limited and is also found in the early afternoon a shady spot. At the booth, there are no showers, the toilet has now been bricked, also here the modernization has arrived, we are curious, when the first shower is available. Even the somewhat malodorous Dümpel was littered, was cleaned. The beach restaurant you can eat excellent, There are fish and seafood, but you also get a club sandwich with fries or spaghetti. The prices are alright, that price performance ratio and the staff is very friendly, at lunch time it can happen that you have to wait a little longer for his food, but that’s not really a problem, it is, after all, on holiday. Snorkeling here you can also quite wonderful, you can see many colorful fish. Snorkelling equipment can be hired at the restaurant, can not cost much. Also the beach is suitable for children, there are no currents and no high waves. With a stroller but it does not come down to the beach. Then arrive in the late afternoon some locals to the beach and most looking forward, if you chat a bit with them and even more fun is when you speak to them in few words Sinhale. All in all still nice and clean, The Jungle Beach between Galle and Unawatuna.
