Hidden Buena Vista (pleasant view) of the Island along the Southern coast, the Jungle beach is worth enough for visiting. The beach is located nearly 7.5km from the main city, Galle and few kilometres from Rumassala, Unawatuna area.
Golden sandy shore and rich bio diversity background stoles every heart. When you enter the beach you can see the sun bath facilities around the cafeteria. If you need to relax yourself peacefully, print some more steps forward and you will get lost yourself in the deserted area of the beach. Although it is smaller in size, treat its guest well. Jungle beach is suitable to enjoy swimming without waves. The beach is rich in coral reefs and marine biology. In ancient days the place is used to take fresh water before starting great voyages. The stone inscriptions and residues around the area describe them well. The visitors love the beach as well as the pathway to the beach. Because the way to jungle beach was filled with many uncommon birds, animals, plants and helps to feel the jungle experience! As the Rumassala rock is a part of Himalaya range which was brought by “Hanuman” to heal the injured battalions in order to obey the request of King Rama, it contains many medicinal herb plants.
As the jungle beach is somewhat a remote location, it is never get overflow with tourists. But those who interest in adventure and hike visit here.
The great statue of Hanuman and Japanese peace pagoda which was gifted by a Japan monk adds more interest to the venue. Advised not to miss the scenic beauty of the Indian Ocean when hike down from the Japanese peace pagoda.
